First occurrence of the goldspotted oak borer parasitoid, Calosota elongata (Hymenoptera: Eupelmidae), in California
Pan-Pacific Entomologist. 88: 274-276.
Calosota elongata Gibson (Hymenoptera: Eupelmidae) is a gregarious, ectoparasitic larval parasitoid that was described recently (Gibson 2010) in association with the goldspotted oak borer, Agrilus coxalis Waterhouse [now considered to be Agrilus auroguttatus Schaeffer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)] in its native range in southeastern Arizona. We have discovered this parasitoid outside of its presumptive native range on 1 December 2010 near the Pine Creek Trailhead, Cleveland National Forest in San Diego Co., California, beneath the bark of coast live oak, Quercus agrifolia Née (Fagaceae), in association with A. auroguttatus.
