Williams, D.J., & Henderson, R.C. 2005 A new species of the mealybug genus Rastrococcus Ferris (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Pseudococcidae) from New Zealand.. Zootaxa 1985: 47-60.
Notes: A new species of the mealybug genus Rastrococcus Ferris, R. namartini sp. nov., is described from New Zealand. It feeds on Myrsine australis (A. Rich.) Allan and, although it is related to R. asteliae (Maskell), the only other species in the genus known from New Zealand, it seems to be most similar to R. matileae Williams & Watson, described from New Caledonia. In addition to the adult female, the first instar, second-instar male, prepupa and pupa are also described and illustrated. The adult female differs from all other species in the genus in possessing only 10 pairs of distinct cerarii.
