Pers.; Sphenophorusincurrens Gyllenhal was collected in Querétaro on Pennisetum clandestinum Hochst, (new state record); Sphenophorus rectus (Say) was collected in Veracruz on P. clandestinum (new host plant record); and Sphenophorus venatus vestitus Chittenden was collected in Puebla, Veracruz, Guerrero, Baja California Sur and Nuevo León on C.dactylon and in Guanajuato on Lolium perenne L.
