Oceanaspidiotus araucariae (Adachi & Fullaway, 1953) 

Octaspidiotus araucariae Adachi & Fullaway, 1953: 89  .

PUBLISHED RECORDS IN NEW CALEDONIA. — Cohic (1956); Brun & Chazeau (1986).

DISTRIBUTION IN NEW CALEDONIA. — Precise distribution unknown.

OTHER RECORDS. — Micronesia (Caroline Island), West Indies (Florida, Puerto Rico), Central Pacific ( French Polynesia, Hawaii, Wallis Island).

HOST- PLANTS IN NEW CALEDONIA. — Araucaria  spp.

NOTES. — Reported as a serious pest on Araucaria  spp. in Wallis Island ( Cohic 1959c). According to the species association with Araucaria  spp. ( Takagi 1984), this is obviously an autochtonous species in New Caledonia rather than introduced as stated by Cohic (1958a). Not common, and no records of it causing significant damage in New Caledonia.
