Distribution. Afrotropical: Tanzania. Australasian: Hawaiian Islands (Oahu), New Zealand (North Island). Nearctic: Mexico, USA. Neotropical: Argentina, Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands. Oriental: India, Sri Lanka. Palaearctic: Belgium (in greenhouses.), Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Italy, Madeira Islands, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom ( England) ( Ben-Dov et al. 2015).

Remarks. Pseudoparlatoria parlatorioides   commonly known as the false parlatoria scale is probably native to tropical America (Miller and Davidson 2008). We found it at different altitudes ranging between 967 to 1925 m, on avocados of the following cultivars: ‘Booth 8’, ‘Choquette’, ‘Santana’ and ‘Trinidad’. This species is found on the underside of the leaves and live crowded in large groups up to 600 individuals per leaf, and in this situation it causes chlorosis symptoms (J. Muñoz, personal observation).
