Miyanoshita, A., & Kawai, S. 1992 [Influence of predation by Mallada boninensis (Okamoto) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) and autumn movement of female adults on survival of Ceroplastes japonicus Green (Homoptera: Coccidae), a model experiment with cages.]. Japanese Journal of Applied Entomology and Zoology 36(3): 196-199.

Notes: Abstract: The survival rate of Ceroplastes japonicus on Euonymus japonicus was compared between two groups of test plants; one group was isolated from natural enemies by cages covered with 1-mm mesh net, and the control group lacked cages; females of C. japonicus survived much more on test plants with cages than on controls; active predation by larvae of Mallada boninensis was observed on test plants without cages from July to August, but no other predators were observed; predation by this species is suggested to be a major mortality factor of C. japonicus in summer.
