  • Notes: The list reports all scale species documented as pests, numbering 640 species in 28 families. In the key to Table 2, AU is said to be 'Australian' when it should be 'Australasian'. Thus, some listed species that did not occur in Australia as of June 2024 are listed as occurring in Australia, For example: Aspidiella hartii was listed in ScaleNet as Australian in error and it has now been removed.
