Uygun, N., Sengonca, C., Erkılıç, L.B., & Schade, M. 1998 The Coccoidea fauna and their host plants in cultivated and non-cultivated areas in the East Mediterranean region of Turkey.. Acta Phytopathologica Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae 33: 1-2, 183-191.

Notes: The Coccoidea fauna of agricultural crops, ornamental and urban plants, forests and macchia was studied in the east Mediterranean region of Turkey in 1994-97. A total of 51 Coccoidea species including 30 from Diaspididae and 22 species from Coccidae, Pseudococcidae, Eriococcidae, Asterolecaniidae, Kermesidae, Ortheziidae, Cerococcidae, and Margarodidae were identified and are tabulated. Six diaspidid species (Diaspidiotus distinctus, Duplachionaspis stanotophri, Rhizaspidiotus donacis, Lepidosaphes malicola, Leucaspis knemion and Parlatoria crotonis), one species from Pseudococcidae and Coccidae, and the genus Acanthococcus from Eriococcidae were determined as new records for the Turkish fauna. Most species encountered were from the family Diaspididae (30) followed by Coccidae (9). Scale insects were more frequently determined on wild plants, especially on those bordering agricultural fields, than on crop plants. Scale insects on wild plants were often associated with different parasitoids and predators, indicating that these habitats play an important role in the natural control of scale insects in agricultural crops.
