Comments

Laminicoccus pandani  , the most widespread and common species of Laminicoccus  , is distributed at present throughout Micronesia and Polynesia. The most important characters of this mealybug are the absence of a circulus and the presence of large numbers of multilocular disc pores on the venter, situated across the medial areas of most abdominal segments. Oral­rim tubular ducts, each with the duct about as wide as long, are distributed around the dorsal and ventral margins and submedially on the dorsum of the thorax.
