During my work on the taxonomy of the Coccoidea carried out at the Scott Agricultural Laboratories, Nairobi, a large amount of material from many parts of Africa was forwarded for identification by entomologists and farmers, or collected by me in Kenya, Tanganyika, Uganda and Zanzibar. Of the several species, old and new, thus accumulated in the departmental collection, only those belonging to the families Coccidae and Pseudococcidae have been thorougly reviewed in my papers published to date. Although the remainder are no longer available for critical study, numerous notes on most of them are at hand dealing with their identity, distribution and host plants.
