Assefa, Y., & Malindzisa, N. 2018 Molecular Identification of Mealybugs (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) on Cultivated, Ornamental and Wild Host Plants in Swaziland. Asian Research Journal of Agriculture 9(1): 1-10


  • DNA sequencing
  • distribution
  • host
  • molecular data
  • Notes: In this study, a DNA barcoding approach was used to identify mealybug species attacking wild hosts, ornamentals and cultivated crops in the country. Molecular identification using fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase sub-unit I revealed the presence of six mealybug species belonging to four genera.
