Sorry, all wrong, as can be seen easily by considering the dimensions.
The first one is 1/Farad, the second Farad^2.

The rule is the same as for parallell resistors:

 The inverse of the equivalent value is the sum of the inverses
 of all individual values.

 1/Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/C3 + ...

or for just two of them

 Ceq = (C1 * C2) / (C1 + C2)
