oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new genus and three new species of scale insects (Hom. Coccoidea) from South Africa

Volume 18, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The following three species of the tribe Diaspidini have been submitted for identification by Dr. H. K. Munro of the Department of Agriculture, Pretoria. Hall has already discussed over 60 species of this tribe from South Africa where there is a high proportion of Chionaspiform species. One descriptionbed herein, belonging to the Chionaspiform group, is so distinct from the recorded species that a new genus has been erected. This will no doubt be increased by other species after further collecting.
