Coccus latioperculatum ( Green, 1922) 

( Figs 26 View Figure , 27 View Figure )

Lecanium latioperculatum Green, 1922: 1022  .

Diagnosis. Dorsum with setae cylindrical, blunt apically ( Fig. 27D View Figure ); tubular ducts and duct tubercles absent; preopercular pores present anterior to anal plates ( Fig. 27E View Figure ). Marginal setae short, with pointed, bifid or fimbriate apices ( Figs 26C View Figure , 27B View Figure ). Venter with multilocular disc-pores each usually with 10 loculi ( Fig. 27G View Figure ); tubular ducts each with a narrow inner ductule, a few present around each pro- and mesocoxa ( Figs 26D View Figure , 27K View Figure ); pregenital setae numbering 3 pairs; antenna 7 segmented ( Fig. 27L View Figure ); and legs each with a tibio-tarsal articulatory sclerosis ( Figs 26E View Figure , 27H View Figure ) (partially adopted from Avasthi & Shafee 1991).

Material examined. 33 ♀♀, LAOS, Chanthabouly Dist., Vientiane Capital, 28.x.2014, coll. J.Y. Choi, on Mangifera indica  L. ( Anacardiaceae  ); 11 ♀♀, Nan Dist., Sayaboury Prov., 31.x.2014 (same collector and host plant).

Hosts. Anacardium occidentale  ; Mangifera indica  and Spondias pinnata  ( Anacardiaceae  ) ( Ali 1971; Avasthi & Shafee 1991).

Distribution. Oriental Region ( India and Sri Lanka) ( Avasthi & Shafee 1991); Laos (new country record).

Economic importance. Coccus latioperculatum  has not been recorded as a serious pest.

Remarks. Coccus latioperculatum  is similar to C. formicarii (Green)  , which also lacks dorsal tubercles; however, C. latioperculatum  is easily distinguished from C. formicarii  by the following morphological differences (character states of C. gymnospori  in parenthesis): (i) dorsal setae cylindrical (sharply spinose), (ii) marginal setae with bifid or fimbriate apices (with pointed apices), and (iii) legs with tibio-tarsal articulatory scleroses (without tibio-tarsal articulatory scleroses).
