Hendawy, A.S., El-Mitwally, M.F., & Abd-El-Samea, S.A. 2002 Scientific note: Coccophagus scutellaris (Dalman) (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae), a new record parasitoid attacking sugar-cane soft scale insect, Pulvinaria tenuvalvata (Newstead) in Egypt.. Egyptian Journal of Agricultural Research 80(1): 219-222.

Notes: Nymphs and adults of Pulvinaria tenuvalvata were collected from infested sugarcane plants in Luxor, Egypt during 2000 and maintained in the laboratory. The insects were monitored daily until they completed their life cycle or until parasitoids emerged from them. The parasitoids were identified as C. scutellaris. This is thought to be the first report of C. scutellaris infesting P. tenuvalvata.
