( Figs 16View FIGURE 16, 17View FIGURE 17)

Lecanium capparidis Green, 1904b: 187  .

Diagnosis. Dorsum with setae clavate ( Fig. 17CView FIGURE 17); tubular ducts absent; duct tubercles present ( Fig. 17BView FIGURE 17); and preopercular pores present anterior to anal plates ( Fig. 17DView FIGURE 17). Marginal setae spinose, with pointed or slightly fimbriate apices ( Fig. 17JView FIGURE 17). 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. 17FView FIGURE 17); tubular ducts each with a narrow inner ductule, restricted to submarginal area of abdomen ( Fig. 17GView FIGURE 17); pregenital setae numbering 1 or 2 pairs; antenna 6 or 7 segmented ( Fig. 17KView FIGURE 17); and legs without tibio-tarsal articulatory scleroses ( Fig. 17HView FIGURE 17) (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.

Remarks. Coccus capparidis  differs from other Lao species of Coccus  in possessing ventral tubular ducts in the submarginal areas of the abdomen only.
