Ragusa di Chiara, S., & Tsolakis, H. 1995 The effect of Phenacoccus madeirensis Green (Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae) on some biological parameters of four species of phytoseiid mites (Parasitiformes: Phytoseiidae).. Israel Journal of Entomology 29: 301-307.

Notes: This mealybug was supplied as prey to the following species of phytoseiid mites: Euseius stipulatus, Iphiseius degenerans, Typhlodromus exhilaratus and Typhlodromus cryptus in order to assay its effect on their postembryonic development and oviposition rate; no young stages of the four species developed beyond the protonymph stage; only very few eggs were laid by females of the four species.
