oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - On some Ethiopian species of the genus Coccus (Homoptera: Coccoidea : Coccidae)

Volume 20, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



This paper deals with the identity of a small group of soft scales occurring in the Ethiopian region. Most of them are of economic importance as they attack cultivated plants on which, at times, they cause serious damage. The species included were chosen among those that in the writer's opinion are all clearly referable to the genus Coccus as it is currently understood.
