Notes: [Special Issue: Proceedings of the ISSIS IX International Symposium on Scale Insect Studies held at The University of Padua, Italy, Sept. 2-8, 2001.] Previous reports of the Mexican mealybug, P. gossypii in Japan were confirmed to be misidentifications of the Madeira mealybug, P. madeirensis. The Madeira mealybug is reported from the Bonin Islands, Kyushu, Shikoku, and the Ryukyu Islands where it is widespread. Distribution of the Madeira mealybug and 25 host records in Japan are given.
