Santa-CecĂ­lia, L.V.C., Reis, P.R., & Souza, J.C. 2002 Sobre a nomenclatura das especies de cochonilhas-farinhentas do cafeeiro nos Estados de Minas Gerais e Espirito Santo. [About the nomenclature of coffee mealybug species in Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo States, Brazil.]. Brazil Neotropical Entomology 31(2): 333-334.

Notes: Root coffee mealybugs (Coffea arabica L.) (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) collected in Boa Esperanca, southern Minas Gerais State, were identified as Dysmicoccus texensis (Tinsley) (=bispinosus Beardsley) and those from stems and leaves collected in Castelo, State of the Espirito Santo, as Planococcus minor (Maskell). However, Brazilian literature mentions other mealybug species of coffee as Pseudococcus cryptus Hempel on roots and Planococcus citri (Risso) on leaves. Therefore, more than one mealybug species may occur on coffee.
