Planococcus citri (Risso)   ( Pseudococcus   )

Pseudococcus   ? viburni   (Signoret)

Green (1913) recorded a single specimen of Pseudococcus maritimus (Ehrhorn)   from Krakatau, collected on the sea shore. This mealybug is New World in origin and most records elsewhere have proved to be based on misidentifications. We believe that the species could have been Pseudococcus viburni   , often misidentified as P. maritimus   in the past.

Pseudococcus   sp.

Listed by Dammerman (1948: 474) on Ipomoea pescaprae   [ Convolvulaceae   ].
