Foldi, I., & van Harten, A. 2004 Scale insects of the family Margarodidae in Yemen (Hemiptera, Coccoidea).. Bulletin de la Societe Entomologique de France 109(1): 79-82.
Notes: Scale insects belonging to the family Margarodidae were studied in Yemen as part of an inventory of the arthropod diversity, particularly of arthropod crop pests and their real or potential natural enemies. At least nine species of margarodids were recorded, six at specific level and three or more, identified only at generic level. Of those, Icerya, Pseudaspidoproctus and Neomargarodes represent a potential danger to date palm, citrus, grapevine and other cultivated plants. Data are given on the biology, host plant distribution in Yemen, and economic importance of the recorded species.
