  • Notes: While working in the curation of some sections of the California Academy of Sciences, the authors discovered several undescribed species of armored scales (Hemiptera- Sternorryncha-Coccoidea- Diaspididae), whiteflies (Hemiptera-Sternorryncha- Aleyrodidae) and sweat bees (Hymenoptera- Halictidae) some of which have been described and published as new to science in recent years.
