Ctenarytaina Ferris & Klyver 

( Figs 13View FIGURES 10 – 27, 41View FIGURES 37 – 46. 37 – 38, 47View FIGURES 47 – 58, 77View FIGURES 77 – 80)

Diagnosis: Head strongly deflected; genal processes cone-shaped, shorter than half the vertex length ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 10 – 27). Antenna scarcely longer than head width, terminal setae strongly unequal; pterostigma present ( Fig. 47View FIGURES 47 – 58). Metacoxa with tubercular meracanthus; mesotibia with a longitudinal outer apical comb of short bristles ( Fig. 41View FIGURES 37 – 46. 37 – 38).

Biology and damage: Ctenarytaina eucalypti  and C. spatulata  are considered pests in plantations of Eucalyptus  (Burckhardt et al. 1999; Santana & Burckhardt 2007). Immatures of both species live in colonies feeding on young plants or shoots, secreting waxy filaments and honeydew ( Cadahia 1980; Santana & Burckhardt 2007), the latter promoting the growth of sooty mould (Santana et al. 1999; Pinzón et al. 2002; Santana & Burckhardt 2007). Reported damage for C. eucalypti  includes dessication, distortion and deformation of leafs and shoots, which acquire a blackish gray coloration ( Cadahia 1980).

Host-plants: Eucalyptus  ( Myrtaceae  ) ( Taylor 1997; Burckhardt et al. 1999; Hollis 2004).

Distribution: Indo-Australian and African genus ( Burckhardt 1994b; NHMB data), some Australian species introduced into Africa, America, Asia, Europe and New Zealand (Burckhardt & Queiroz 2012).— Colombia: Ctenarytaina eucalypti (Pinzón et al. 2002)  .

Remarks: This is the first record of Ctenarytaina spatulata  in Colombia.
