NEW GENERA AND SPECIES OF APHELININ1E, WITH A REVISED TABLE OF GENERA.
By L. (). I1owAp. I'h. I).


INTRODUCTION.
Technical Series, No. 1, published in June, 189.5, comprised a consideration of the Aphelinina of North America, together with some mention of the insects of this group) found in other parts of the world. In that publication the species of thirteen genera were considered, and twenty-six species were described. The economic importance of the group was pointed out and tables of host relations were printed. It was shown that economically these minute parasites are by far the most important of the parasites of the Diaspina, and in the twelve years that have elapsed since the publication of the bulletin their economic importance has become even more evident. It is claimed in California that the San Jose scale is held in subjection by these creatures, and in point of fact observations by Johnson and others in the East have shown that under certain conditions Apheli t us fuscipen 7nis How. may multiply to such an extent as to produce a very high percentage of parasitism of this scale sect. Whether these parasites in the eastern United States will ever become as effective as in California, however, seems doubtful, on account of the longer breeding season on the Pacific coast, and as a matter of fact the opportunity to test the question does not exist, so universal and so effective has become the use of the lime-sulphur sprays in the eastern States.
In the twelve years since the publication of Technical Series, No. 1, many different species of Aphelinina have been reared in one part of the world or another, and most of them have been referred to the writer for study. Very few, however, have been described; these are as follows:

Tlae present paper comprises a description of twenty new species ind five new genera. Nearly (III of these were received from other p,,irts of the, world, but some of them have no doubt already Nr been
established d in this country. In fact, in looking over the material that has accumulated since the publicatioii of Technical Series No. 1, it becomes obvious that the Aphelinine fauna-of the United States, par-





NEW GENERA AN-\D SPECIES OF APHELYI1NE. 71

ticularly of the eastern Unitedl States, has been undergoing a chan.ge. Species that were abundant eight or twelve years ago have become scarce, and introduced species have tarken their places. It is indeed difficult. to decide whether aniy of our AplielinnT are natives of the United States. rib introduction of plants fromi albroail including verve manv differentt kinds of hothouse plants beariii~y scale isects, has resulted in the introduction not only of new\A scale insects, but of a numlfber of species of sca.le-insect parasites. These parasites have ulndoubltedly in somle instanices attacked native scale insects and~ have incrIeasedl inl number. It seenis very p)ossile thnaIt C( ,,obtyt fc(IU / F~itch anid Atpbclbitt, ~ / /d p L;S e Bairon are nVialive Sp~ecies. The sale, too, is prolbal v the cl(se wiA-th A ,uti,# cclraN (ori;U oft I a idemianl but it seems p~rolbable that of the remaining, species the great majority are (of foreign origin.
