Coccoidea

Male and female of Puto albicans, in ventral view, from Grimaldi & Engel (2005).


Belongs within: Coccinea.
Contains: Pseudococcidae, Eriococcidae, Coccidae, Diaspididae.

The Coccoidea are recognised here, following Koteja (2000), as including the neococcoid scale insects; other authors use this name to refer to all scale insects (Coccinea).

Characters (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005, as 'neococcoids'): Females lacking abdominal spiracles; male eyes reduced to individual facets; unique chromosomal system of sex determination by paternal genome elimination.
