Aonidiella aurantii  , A. citrina  , A. eremocitri  , A. inornata  , A. orientalis  , A. taxus  , Aspidiotus cryptomeriae  , A. destructor  , A. nerii  , Chrysomphalus aonidum  , C. bifasciculatus  , C. dictyospermi  , C. sp., Diaspidiotus gigas  , D. perniciosus  , Diaspis echinocacti  , Dynaspidiotus abietis  , Hemiberlesia rapax  , Morganella longispina  , Pseudaulacaspis pentagona 

Remarks. This is an Oriental species imported into many countries during various biological control programs. It was released in California from 1906 through 1952 (primarily for control of Aonidiella aurantii  ); the earliest importations failed, but the species finally became established in California in the mid- 1920 s ( Rosen & DeBach 1978). This species was also introduced into Hawaii for control of several species, including Saissetia coffeae  , even though it has never been demonstrated that this species is acceptable host ( Funasaki et al. 1988).
