Ceballos, M.R., & Granda, C. 2004 Hambletonia pseudococcina Compere (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Encyrtidae): new report in Cuba.. Revista de Protección Vegetal 19(1): 70 pp.

Notes: In a survey conducted in Cuba on July 2003 to detect the presence of pink mealybug (Maconellicoccus hirsutus) infesting hibiscus, a species of Dysmicoccus infesting coffee and banana was observed to be infested by Hambletonia pseudococcina [H. pseudococcinna]. H. pseudococcina is a parasitoid of the pineapple mealybug Dysmicoccus brevipes, which is distributed in Mexico, Florid (USA), Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Taiwan. This is thought to be the first report of H. pseudococcina in Cuba.
