Puto subericola (Vayssière)  

Phenacoccus subericola Vayssière, 1927: 110   .

Puto subericola   ; Balachowsky, 1953 b: 304. Change of combination.

The type specimens were collected on Quercus suber   ( Fagaceae   ) in Morocco. We studied the lectotype, two paralectotypes and 11 other specimens from Morocco. Of the six claws present on the lectotype, only one claw has basal spurs. There are nine claws only on eight paralectotypes and we have not been able to detect any basal spurs. Three other specimens are available from Morocco, collected on Vitis vinifera   ; on one specimen with five claws, only two claws possess basal spurs, another specimen with one claw has basal spurs and the other specimen has two claws, both have basal spurs. We presume that spurs are normally present on all claws and that damage to the legs has occurred during handling of the specimens or by chemical treatment during slide preparation.
