Distribution. Cosmopolitan ( Ben-Dov et al. 2015).

Remarks. The species was found on the underside of avocado leaves on the following cultivars: ‘Booth 8’, ‘Choquette’, ‘Hass’, ‘Lorena’ and an undetermined cultivar. The Cyanophyllum scale, H. cyanophylli   is highly polyphagous and has been recorded on 75 genera in 18 plant families ( Borchsenius 1966). Hemiberlesia cyanophylli   , A. tubercularis   and C. dictyospermi   are frequently found on the fruit of ‘Hass’ avocado, although their damage appears to be only cosmetic. It should be noted that we did not find any other diaspidid species on fruits of other avocado cultivars. This could be due to the rugose texture of the fruit of ‘Hass’ avocados, which provides a perfect place for feeding and settling. These three diaspidid species are here considered of quarantine importance because they can be found on fruit.
