Fetykó, K., & Kozár, F. 2012 Records of Ceroplastes Gray 1828 in Europe, with an identification key to species in the Palaearctic Region. Bulletin of Insectology 65(2): 291-295

Notes: The genus Ceroplastes (Hemiptera Coccoidea Coccidae) in Europe is reviewed. Surveys of Hungarian nurseries, greenhouses and flower shops found plants infested with Ceroplastes scale insects. Among them, Ceroplastes rubens Maskell 1893 was identified. Since there is constant invasion of European markets by species of Ceroplastes, a key is presented to separate the species currently known to occur in the Palaearctic Region.
