Abd-Rabou, S. 2001d Parasitoids attack mealybugs (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae) in Egypt.. Egyptian Journal of Agricultural Research 79(4): 1355-1376.
Notes: Twenty-six hymenopterous parasitoid species (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae, Encyrtidae, Platygasteridae, Signiphoridae) attacking twenty mealybug species (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae) are recorded in Egypt. The other twenty-five recorded mealybug species in Egypt have no records of parasitoids. Keys to these parasitoids were structured for each species of mealybugs. Identification was based on the taxonomic characters of the adult female. Detailed figures were constructed for some key characters. A list of eighteen parasitoids and eight hyperparasitoids of Egyptian mealybugs is given.
