With the examination of the types or specimens of the type series of of few more soft scales, the redescriptionption of or comment on the Ethiopian species currently referred to the genus Coccus is nearly complete. Among the species treated in the following pages it is now possible to present a detailed redescriptionption of Coccus hesperidum Linnaeus, 1758. This species, so important for economic entomologists and systematists' alike, was omitted from the previous paper because all specimens then at hand did not entirely agree with the diagnoses of some other modern authors.
