Coccus viridis ( Green, 1889)  

( Figs 28 View FIGURE 28 , 29 View FIGURE 29 )

Lecanium viride Green, 1889: 248   .

Diagnosis. Dorsum with setae cylindrical, blunt apically ( Fig. 29A View FIGURE 29 ); tubular ducts absent; duct tubercles present ( Fig. 29F View FIGURE 29 ); and preopercular pores present anterior to anal plates ( Fig. 29E View FIGURE 29 ). Marginal setae short, mostly with fimbriate apices ( Figs 28C View FIGURE 28 , 29I View FIGURE 29 ). Venter with multilocular disc-pores each usually with 7 loculi ( Fig. 29H View FIGURE 29 ); tubular ducts each with a broad inner ductule, frequent in medial area between mesocoxae, between metacoxae, and occasionally a few present around each procoxa ( Figs 28E View FIGURE 28 , 29L View FIGURE 29 ); pregenital setae numbering 3 pairs; antenna 7 segmented ( Figs 28D View FIGURE 28 , 29O View FIGURE 29 ); and legs each with a tibio-tarsal articulatory sclerosis ( Figs 28F View FIGURE 28 , 29M View FIGURE 29 ) (partially adopted from Williams & Watson 1990).

Material examined. 5 ♀♀, LAOS, Pakxan Dist., Bolikhamsai Prov., 30.iv.2015, coll. J.Y. Choi, on Lagerstroemia   sp. ( Lythraceae   ); 17 ♀♀, Bolikhanh Dist., Bolikhamsai Prov., 4.v.2015, on Citrus sp. ( Rutaceae   ) (same collector); 2 ♀♀, Paksong Dist., Champasak Prov., 16.i.2017, coll. P.P. Soysouvanh, on Coffea   sp. ( Rubiaceae   ).

Hosts. Polyphagous. According to García Morales et al. (2016), C. viridis   has been recorded from plants belonging to 144 genera in 61 families. In Laos, it has been recorded on Ficus   sp. ( Moraceae   ) ( Suh & Bombay 2015).

Distribution. All zoogeographical regions; Oriental Region ( India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam) ( Suh & Bombay 2015; García Morales et al. 2016).

Economic importance. Williams & Watson (1990) recorded C. viridis   as an economically important pest of citrus and coffee in the tropical South Pacific; infestations have been reported also from Florida ( Fredrick 1943), Kenya and Papua New Guinea ( Murphy 1991).

Remarks. Among coffee pests in Laos, C. viridis   is similar to C. celatus De Lotto. For   a comparison, see the remarks section for C. celatus   above.
