Anagyrus schoenherri (Westwood, 1837)  

Anagyrus flavus Ishii, 1928: 86   . Synonymy by GAHAN (1949: 360).

Anagyrus alboclavatus Ishii, 1928: 85   . Synonymy by TACHIKAWA (1965: 93).

Type material examined. Anagyrus flavus   : LECTOTYPE: ♀ (here designated) (No. 157), Nagasaki, ex Pulvinaria sp.   on Mallotus japonicus   , 4.vi.1926, M. Maida lgt.

Additional material examined. 1 ♀, Tsukumi , Oita, 20.–25.v.1955, T. Tachikawa lgt., G. Japoshvili det.   ; 1 ♀, Matsuyama , 19.v.1955, T. Tachikawa lgt., Japoshvili det. ( ELKU)   .

Distribution. Japan: Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku ( TACHIKAWA 1963a). Palaearctic ( NOYES 2016).

Comments. It is likely that the host recorded above is erroneous since species of Anagyrus   are almost exclusively parasitoids of mealybugs ( Hemiptera   : Pseudococcidae   ). It is likely that the true host is Phenacoccus pergandei Cockerell, 1896   , a species commonly found on Mallotus japonicus   in Japan ( KAWAI 1980) and which looks very similar to Pulvinaria sp.   ( Hemiptera   : Coccidae   ). TACHIKAWA (1963) also states that the abovementioned host record is probably incorrect, as all specimens found later in Japan were reared only from Phenacoccus sp.  

We were not able to find the type material of A. alboclavatus   .
