Cheiloneurus phenacocci Trjapitzin, 1964


Cheiloneurus phenacocci Trjapitzin, 1964  

Material examined. 6 ♀♀, Matsuyama,, T. Tachikawa lgt. & det. ( ELKU).

Comments. The above material was incorrectly identified as Ch. phenacocci   by TACHIKAWA (1971). The specimens differ from Ch. phenacocci   in having all funicle segments longer than wide, the scutellum yellow and the clava shorter than F2–F6. In Ch. phenacocci   the funicle segments F2–F3 are almost subquadrate and F4 slightly longer than width. We therefore removed this species from the list of Japanese encyrtids. The true identity of the specimens remains unresolved.
