Bambusaspis robusta (Green)  

Lever (1945 a) and Hinckley (1965) recorded Asterolecanium pustulans (Cockerell)   from Fiji on bamboo and Schizostachyum glaucifolium   . These records were found to be misidentifications for B. robusta   by Williams and Watson (1990). The present specimens were collected on Taveuni, Bouma, on leaves of Bambusa   sp., 23.vii. 2009.
