  • Notes: The mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) nucleotide sequences of Unaspis mabilis Lit & Barbecho (Hemiptera: Diaspididae), are provided for the first time. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that generated COI sequences from U. mabilis form a monophyletic clade with U. yanonensis and U. euonymi, with closer proximity to the former.
