Mazzeo, G., Franco, J.C., & Russo, A. 2009 A new Paracoccus species from Palaearctic region (Hemiptera, Sternorrhyncha, Coccoidea, Pseudococcidae).. Zootaxa 2274: 62-68.
Notes: A new mealybug species, Paracoccus leucadendri sp. nov., is described from Portugal on Leucadendron) sp.. This is the first record of a Paracoccus species from Europe. It is suggested that its presence in Portugal is the result of a fortuitous introduction with its host plant, Leucadendron sp. (Proteaceae). An identification key is presented to distinguish this new Paracoccus species from other mealybug species reported on Proteaceae in the world.
