  • Notes: The second, final part of a two-volume monograph reviews subfamily Phenacoccinae in the frame of Palaearctic fauna and provides morphological descriptions and keys for 258 species from 47 genera; most of the descriptions are illustrated by complete figures. New synonymy was established for 11 generic and 47 specific names; 58 new taxonomic combinations are provided; 1 species is described as newe to science. Thereby the monograph and a whole considers 498 species from 72 genera, excluding some inadequately described species which are not included in the keys, but briefly mentioned in the discussions of appropriate genera. Additionally, the second part includes a general list of references and an alphabetical list of insect names.
