Lecanium capparidis Green, 1904b: 187  .

Diagnosis. Dorsum with setae clavate ( Fig. 17C View Figure ); tubular ducts absent; duct tubercles present ( Fig. 17B View Figure ); and preopercular pores present anterior to anal plates ( Fig. 17D View Figure ). Marginal setae spinose, with pointed or slightly fimbriate apices ( Fig. 17J View Figure ). Venter with multilocular disc-pores each usually with 7 or 8 loculi, frequent around vulvar area, less frequently present on anterior area of abdomen ( Fig. 17F View Figure ); tubular ducts each with a narrow inner ductule, restricted to submarginal area of abdomen ( Fig. 17G View Figure ); pregenital setae numbering 1 or 2 pairs; antenna 6 or 7 segmented ( Fig. 17K View Figure ); and legs without tibio-tarsal articulatory scleroses ( Fig. 17H View Figure ) (partially adopted from Williams & Watson 1990; Wang & Feng 2012a).

Material examined. 2 ♀♀, LAOS, Saysetha Dist., Vientiane Capital, 24.vii.2016, coll. P.P. Soysouvanh, on Bauhinia malabarica Roxb.  ( Fabaceae  ).

Hosts. Polyphagous. According to García Morales et al. (2016), C. capparidis  has been recorded from plants belonging to 32 genera in 21 families.

Distribution. All zoogeographical regions; Oriental Region ( Hong Kong, India and Sri Lanka) ( García Morales et al. 2016); Laos (new country record).

Economic importance. Coccus capparidis  has been listed as a potential pest of citrus in Egypt ( Morse et al. 1996); also, Ben-Dov (1980) and Blumberg & Swirski (1984) reported that in Israel it mostly infests citrus.
