Abstract Background The Scymnini (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) of the Indian region is rich and highly speciose, with nearly 90 described species and scores of undescribed species (Poorani 2002). There is a dire need to systematically revise the genera and species of this tribe from the Indian region. Due to paucity of representative collections covering the entire region and lack of access to types, it is difficult to identify most of the Scymnini of the Indian region to species. As a result… Expand
Scymnini (Coleoptera:Coccinellidae) associated with major sucking pests of Kerala
TLDR

Phylogeny, classification and evolution of ladybird beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) based on simultaneous analysis of molecular and morphological data.
TLDR
The phylogenetic results suggest that the evolutionary success of Coccinellidae is in large part attributable to the exploitation of ant-tended sternorrhynchan insects as a food source, enabled by the key innovation of unusual defense mechanisms in larvae. Expand
Origin, introduction, distribution and management of the invasive spiralling whitefly Aleurodicus dispersus Russell in India.
TLDR
The spiralling whitefly Aleurodicus dispersus Russell poses threat to many crops in India and the density of the whitefly is positively correlated with maximum temperature and negatively correlated with relative humidity. Expand
