Nipaecoccus filamentosus Cockerell, 1893 

Nipaecoccus filamentosus Cockerell, 1893: 254  .

PUBLISHED RECORDS IN NEW CALEDONIA. — Brun & Chazeau (1980, 1986).

OTHER RECORDS. — Haiti, Puerto Rico & Vieques Island, Turks and Caicos Islands (Ben-Dov 2012a).

NOTES. — In previous New Caledonia catalogues ( Brun & Chazeau 1980, 1986), Pseudococcus filamentosus  was included but Cohic (1958a) had already stated that it was a misidentification of N. vastator (Maskell)  , a former synonym of N. viridis  , which was also used in several publications ( Cohic 1958a; Brun & Chazeau 1980, 1986). More recently, Williams & Watson (1990: 124) noted that all records of “ N. filamentosus  ” from the Pacific region are misidentifications of N. viridis  ; N. filamentosus  is a species known only from the West Indies and Central America. Additionally, Ben-Dov (2012a) does not record this taxon from New Caledonia, so this species must be removed from the New Caledonian records.
