The genus Bruchophagus Ashmead was originally described without included species (1 8, Ent. Amer 4: 42). Six years later Ahmead (1 94, Trans. Amer. Ent. Soc. 21: 32) referred three species to it. Two of these, borealis Ahmead and mexicanus Ashmead, were said to have been bred from Bruchus and the third, funebris (Howard), from the clover-seed midge. Shortly thereafter Hopkin (1896, U. S. Dept. Agr., Div. Ent. Bul. 6(n. s.), p. 73) studied funebris carefully and showed that it was not a parasite of the clover-seed midge, as stated by Howard when he described it, but developed by feeding in the clover seed themselves.
