The araucaria black scale, L. rossi was originally described on araucaria in Australia, but since then it has been recorded from many tropical countries and temperate regions ( Williams and Watson 1988a).

Remarks. Lindingaspis rossi was found on the underside of leaves of the ‘Lorena’ variety. This species has been recorded on a wide range of plants, often causing chlorosis and in some cases defoliation ( Williams and Watson 1988a). This is the first record of L. rossi from Colombia.
