  • Notes: In this study, a survey for determining the pseudococcid mealybug (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha: Pseudococcidae) complex of bamboo was conducted in several provinces in Sumatra and Java Island-Indonesia, a part of Indo-Asian regions. The research collected 85 mealybug specimens consisting of five species within 4 genera namely Antonina Signoret (2 species), Chaetococcus Maskell (1 species), Dysmicoccus Ferris (1 species), and Palmicultor Williams (1 species). Antonina pretiosa Ferris and Dysmicoccus zeynepae are newly recorded for the Indonesian Sunda shelf. The identification key of Indonesian bamboo mealybugs and their distribution data are also updated.
