HOST- PLANTS IN NEW CALEDONIA. — Polyphagous, but prefers Citrus  spp. (including all species and cultivars). Also known on Cycas  spp. and Musa  spp. ( Cohic 1956). It can be also observed on Annona  spp., Passiflora  spp. ( Mille 2011) and Rosa  spp. ( Cohic 1958a).

OTHER RECORDS. — Occurs in most citrus -growing areas of the world.

BIOLOGICAL AGENTS.— Aphytis chrysomphali Mercet, 1912  ; A. lignanensis Compere, 1955  ( Hymenoptera  : Aphelinidae  ) and Compariella bifasciata Howard, 1906  ( Hymenoptera  : Encyrtidae  ).
