Coccidology. The study of scale insects (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea)
A brief introduction to the science of coccidology, and a synopsis of the history, advances and challenges in this field of study are discussed. The changes in coccidology since the publication ofExpand
Report of new invasive scale insects (Hemiptera: Coccoidea), Crypticerya multicicatrices Kondo and Unruh (Monophlebidae) and Maconellicoccus hirsutus (Green) (Pseudococcidae), on the islands of San
The need for the implementation of a classical biological control program in the archipelago in order to control invasive scale insect pests is discussed. Expand
The Cassava Mealybug (Phenacoccus manihoti) in Asia: First Records, Potential Distribution, and an Identification Key
Recent distribution records are reported, the climatic suitability for its regional spread using a CLIMEX distribution model is estimated, and a taxonomic key is presented that separates P. manihoti from all other mealybug species associated with the genus Manihot. Expand
Taxonomic review of the lac insect genus Paratachardina Balachowsky (Hemiptera: Coccoidea: Kerriidae), with a revised key to genera of Kerriidae and description of two new species
One of the new species described here is the polyphagous and pestiferous lobate lac scale, which damages trees and woody shrubs in Florida, U.S.A, and has been identified mistakenly as Paratachardina lobata (Chamberlin), an insect native to India and Sri Lanka. Expand

Abstract A new African genus of soft scale insects, Pseudocribrolecanium gen. nov. is erected to accommodate Akermes colae Green & Laing and Cribrolecanium andersoni (Newstead). The adult females andExpand
Synonymy of Etiennea Matile‐Ferrero with Hemilecanium Newstead (Hemiptera: Coccidae), based on morphology of adult females, adult males and first‐instar nymphs, and description of a new potential
A sister group relationship was recovered between the type species of the two genera, Etiennea villiersi Matile‐Ferrero and Hemilecanium theobromae Newstead; that is, each was more closely related to the other than either was to other species in their respective genera. Expand
Delimiting genera of scale insects: molecular and morphological evidence for synonymising Taiwansaissetia Tao, Wong and Chang with Coccus Linnaeus (Hemiptera: Coccoidea: Coccidae)
It is found that Coccus might not be monophyletic, warranting further study of the group, and explicit criteria, including monophyly, diagnosability, sister taxa being of equal rank, and the level of genetic divergence between T. formicarii and C. hesperidum relative to within‐genus divergence of other scale insects were used to assess the taxonomic status of Taiwansaissetia.
