THE CANADIAN ENTOMOLOGIST. 293
SOME PROCTOTRYPOID EGG-PARASITES OF SUGAR-
CANE INSECTS IN JAVA.
BY ALLAN P. DODD, NELSON, N. Q.,
In a small collection of egg-parasites received from Mr. P.
van der Goot, Entomologist, Javan Sugar Experiment Station,
Pasoeroean, Java, were three vials containing Proctotrypoidea as
No. 1. — "Bred from the eggs of Diatrea striatalis. Described
by Dr. Zehnter as Ceraphron benificiens Zehnter." In ' Des
Zuckerrohrund seine Kulter," Kruger, 1899, p. 350, Ceraphron
benificiens Zehnter is figured. The specimens received agree
entirely with this figure, and I have no doubt the specimens
received by me are Zehnter's Ceraphron benificiens. This species
is not a Ceraphron, but belongs to the family Scelionidce, sub-
family Telenomina, genus Phanurus Thomson, and should, there-
fore, be known as Phanurus benificiens Zehnter.
No. 7— "Reared from eggs of an unknown moth on leaves of
sugarcane." These parasites are the same as the foregoing,
namely Phanurus benificiens Zehnter.
No. 5 — "Reared from eggs found on sugarcane; eggs
enclosed." The eggs are probably those of a Pentatomid. The
parasite is herewith described : —
Genus Telenomus Haliday.
1. Telenomus saccharalis, sp. nov.
Female — Length 0.55 mm; very small for the genus. Coal
black, legs and antenna golden yellow, last four antennal joints
Antennae 11-jointed, scape slender, equal to combined length
of pedicel and funicle joints; pedicel much wider and longer than
each funicle joint; funicle joints small; first and' second funicle
joints subequal, longer than wide; third shorter; fourth as wide
as long; fifth transverse; club 4-jointed, much wider than funicle.
its joints much wider than long, second the widest.
