Key to species of soft scales ( Hemiptera  : Coccidae  ) associated with Rosmarinus  spp. ( Lamiaceae  )

(adapted from Hamon & Williams 1984; Gill 1988; Hodgson 1994; and Nakahara & Gill 1985).

1. Spiracular setae numbering more than 3 per stigmatic area, each seta stout, conical / hemispherical / bullet-shaped; anal plates located on a sclerotized anal process...................................................................... 2

- Spiracular setae usually numbering 1–3 per stigmatic area, spine-like; anal plates not located on a sclerotized anal process. 3

2. Filamentous ducts present on ventral submargin; perivulvar pores restricted to area around vulva, with few present on preceding abdominal segments; anal plates each with 2 ventral subapical setae................ Ceroplastes sinensis Del Guercio 

- Filamentous ducts completely absent from ventral submargin; perivulvar pores found on area around vulva and anteriorly on all abdominal segments and near bases of meso- and metathoracic legs; anal plates each with 1 ventral subapical seta............................................................................. Ceroplastes cirripediformis Comstock 

3. Anal plates each with a large discal seta; marginal setae simple, blunt, slightly broadened or with a few fringes; tibio-tarsal sclerosis usually present............................................................................... 4

- Anal plates each without a large discal seta; marginal setae variable; tibio-tarsal sclerosis present or absent.............. 5

4. Ventral tubular ducts in submarginal band of 2 types: one with inner ductule as broad as outer ductule and the other with thin or filamentous inner ductule.......................................................... Saissetia coffeae (Walker) 

- Ventral tubular ducts in submarginal band of 1 type, with slender inner ductule................. Saissetia oleae (Olivier) 

5(3). Dorsal derm becoming heavily sclerotized in older specimens, with polygonal reticulations. Dorsal setae each parallel-sided, with apex clavate (occasionally blunt / flattened and slightly digitate). Marginal setae apically flattened and broadly frayed............................................................................... Parasaissetia nigra (Nietner) 

- Dorsal derm membranous or sclerotized, without polygonal reticulations. Dorsal setae present or absent, when present shape variable, either with parallel sides and blunt or tapering apex or finely or bluntly spinose, apex never clavate. Marginal setae variable............................................................................................ 6

6(5). Submarginal band of ventral tubular ducts absent........................................... Coccus hesperidum  L.

- Submarginal band of ventral tubular ducts present........................................................... 7

7. Dorsal setae absent................................................................................... 8

- Dorsal setae present.................................................................................... 9

8. Anal plates with setose setae; without a sclerotized area around anal plates. Dorsal tubular ducts present, of 2 types, one with a thin inner ductule with a small terminal gland and another with a broad inner ductule with well-developed terminal gland. Dorsal tubercles relatively large, present medially and submedially. Marginal setae spinose. Stigmatic setae numbering 3 per stigmatic area.......................................................... Philephedra tuberculosa Nakahara & Gill 

- Anal plates with stout setae; with a sclerotized area around anal plates. Dorsal tubular ducts and tubercles absent. Marginal setae conical, stout. Stigmatic setae, when present, numbering 1 or 2 (usually 1) per stigmatic area.......................... Cryptinglisia  spp. ( C. corpoica  sp. nov., C. ica  sp. nov., and C. zizyphi  ). For separation of species go to key to species of Cryptinglisia  below.

9. Dorsal tubercles present on submargins. Dorsal setae spine-like or conical, stout, with a blunt apex, of 2 sizes; smaller setae scattered on submedial and submarginal areas; larger setae present on medial areas anterior to anal plates forward to head region. Marginal setae spinose, with blunt apices, each basal socket not particularly narrow. Dorsal tubular ducts present, each with inner ductule broad and terminal gland well-developed......................... Parthenolecanium corni (Bouché) 

- Dorsal tubercles absent. Dorsal setae finely setose, of 1 size, sparsely distributed. Marginal setae variable, mostly flattened and broadened apically, often dentate, each with narrow basal socket. Dorsal tubular ducts absent... Lichtensia viburni Signoret
