Notes: The goal of this paper was to determine the species of scale insects (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea) occurring in the mountains of Sierra del Rosario and Sierra de los Órganos (Guaniguanico range), Pinar del Río province, Cuba, as well as their host plants. Data were gathered from the Zoological Collections, Institute of Ecology and Systematics (CZACC), Cuba, as well as of papers on Cuban scale insects and information from the world scale insect database, ScaleNet. Mapping of collection localities was carried out in at 1:250000 scale, using the program MapInfo Professional Version 4.5. A total of 53 species of scale insects included in 42 genera and six families was obtained, with 11 new species records for the area studied, i.e., Coccus longulus (Douglas, 1887), Kilifia acuminata (Signoret, 1873), Parasaissetia nigra (Nietner, 1861), Protopulvinaria pyriformis (Cockerell, 1894), Pseudokermes vitreus (Cockerell, 1894), Aspidiella sacchari (Cockerell, 1893), Duplaspidiotus tesseratus (Grandpré & Charmoy, 1899), Pinnaspis aspidistrae (Signoret, 1869), Pinnaspis strachani (Cooley, 1899), Pseudoparlatoria parlatorioides (Comstock, 1883), and Eriococcus sp. Fifty four species and 36 families of host plants are recorded, including new host records.
