Among a small collection of scale insects submitted by the Entomological Section of the Department of Agriculture, Asmara, Eritrea, three apparently new species were found and are herein descriptionbed. The holotype of each species will in due course be deposited in the British Museum (N.H.), London, and a paratype in the U.S. National Collection of Coccidae, Washington D.C., U.S.A. The remaining para types are in the collection of the Department of Agriculture, Nairobi, Kenya.
