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 of…
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.
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.

The need for the implementation of a classical biological control program in the archipelago in order to control invasive scale insect pests is discussed.
First report of Tamarixia radiata (Waterston) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), a parasitoid of the Asian citrus psyllid Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) in the Department of Valle Del…
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.
