Russellaspis conspicuum (Brain)   . The specific name is here changed to the Latin feminine conspicua   in the combination Russellaspis conspicua (Brain)   .

Bambusaspis delicatus (Green)   . This is changed here to Bambusapsis delicata (Green).

Asterolecanium grandis (Newstead)   . Newstead first named the species correctly as Pollinia grandis Newstead. The   name was later changed correctly to Asterolecanium grande (Newstead)   , a neuter name, but the present combination A. grandis   (feminine) is now revised to A. grande (Newstead)   , used also by Russell (1941) when almost all specific names in the genus Asterolecanium   were correctly neuter.
