Williams, D.J., & Miller, D.R. 1999 Two new genera and species of mealybugs (Hemiptera : Coccoidea : Pseudococcidae) that produce plant galls.. Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington 101(3): 522-539.
Notes: In the mealybug family Pseudococcidae, only 23 species in 14 genera are known to be gall formers. The purpose of this paper is to describe two new South American genera and species that cause galls; namely Miconicoccus ruebsaameni and Quadrigallicoccus lauracearum. These mealybugs are legless and apparently are related to Antonina Signoret. They are the first gall-forming mealybugs known from the continental land mass of the New World. A review of gall-forming mealybugs from other parts of the world is also presented.
