Sirisena, U.G.A.I, Watson, G.W., Hemachandra, K.S., Sage, O., & Wijayagunasekara, H.N.P. 2015 Scanning Electron Microscopy of Six Selected Mealybug (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) Species of Sri Lanka. Tropical Agricultural Research 26(2): 237 – 247


  • SEM
  • morphology
  • wax glands
  • Notes: The three dimensional structure of the wax-producing pores of mealy bugs is complicated and can be best elucidated using the SEM. Six economically important pest mealy bug species in Sri Lanka were studied.
