Ontogenesis, morphology and higher classification of archaeococcids (Homoptera: Coccinea: Orthezioidea)
The monograph summarizes original research data and published literature data on reproduction, life cycles, individual development and morphology of scale insects of the superfamily Orthezioidea
System of generic groups in mealybugs (Homoptera: Coccinea: Pseudococcidae)
The paper provides a brief conspectus of the system of morphological generic groups, elaborated earlier by the author basing on the total taxonomic revision of Palaearctic mealybugs. Here the system
New scale insects (Homoptera: Coccinea) from Sulawesi and New Guinea, with some other additions to the Indonesian fauna
Six new species of scale insects (Homoptera: Coccinea), Icerya gaponiana n. sp., Crisicoccus strigilis n. sp., Dysmicoccus maclayi n. sp., Rastrococcus kendariensis n. sp., Coccus sulawesicus n. sp.
General trends of chromosomal evolution in Aphidococca (Insecta, Homoptera, Aphidinea + Coccinea)
Parallel trends of chromosomal evolution in Aphidococca are discussed and the authors doubt that Coccinea with their very diverse (and partly primitive) genetic systems may have originated later then Aphidinea withtheir very specialised and unified genetic system.
Taxonomic position of the genus Puto Signoret (Homoptera: Coccinea: Pseudococcidae) and separation of higher taxa in Coccinea
Taxonomic characters of the families Pseudococcidae Cockerell, 1898, Putoidae Beadsley, 1969, Pennygullaniidae Koteja et Azar, 2008 and two superfamilies of Coccinea are discussed in view of
A remarkable example of symbiosis between an animal and a fungus in a new species of legless mealybug (Insecta: Pseudococcidae)
A new species and a new monotypic genus of legless mealybug, Orbuspedum machinator gen. et sp.
Contribution to the cytogenetics of Kuwaniini scale insects (Homoptera, Coccinea, Margarodidae s.l.)
Jansenus burgeri Foldi, 1997 was studied cytogenetically for the first time and it was shown that the species reproduces bisexually, displays XX/X(0) sex chromosome system and 2n=6/5 (female/male) including two pairs of long autosomes and a pair of shorter X-chromosomes in female.
Cytogenetic and taxonomic studies of some legless mealybugs (Homoptera, Coccinea, Pseudococcidae)
The terminological problems connected with the identification and naming of the three scale insect genetic systems, Lecanoid, Comstockioid and Diaspidoid, are discussed and the karyotypes of three widely distributed species are studied.
Karyotypes of six previously unstudied European mealybugs (Homoptera: Pseudococcidae)
All species demonstrate 2n=10 and a Lecanoid genetic system and were studied karyologically for the first time.
First illustration of chromosomes and genetic system of Lecanodiaspidinae (Homoptera, Coccinea, Asterolecaniidae s.l.)
The karyotype of Psoraleococcusmultipori (Morrison, 1921) was studied for the first time, based on material from Indonesia, and it was discovered that the females of P. Multipori exhibit complete ovoviviparity.
