Coccus vitis Linnaeus, 1758: 456. By original designation and monotypy.
The new species described below is a typical member of the tribe Pulvinariini and the subfamily Coccinae, based on the definition of the tribe Pulvinariini presented by Hodgson (1994). The present species keys out to the genus Pulvinaria in Hodgson’s keys to subfamilies, tribes and genera of Coccidae (Hodgson 1994) and fits into his Pulvinaria-group, in which tubular ducts are scarce or absent on the head. However, here we treat the genus in the broad sense, as explained in the Materials and methods section.
Key to Colombian species of the genus Pulvinaria
Morphological character states used for separating Pulvinaria iceryi from Pulvinaria elongata were taken from Mamet (1958). Character states of Pulvinaria urbicola and Pulvinaria psidii were taken from Williams and Watson (1990) and based also on the first author’s personal observations of slide-mounted specimens collected in Japan.
