status

 

Dactylopius tomentosus ( Lamarck, 1801) 

Coccus tomentosus Lamarck, 1801: 299  .

OTHER RECORDS. — Central, North and South America, Australasia, Indian Ocean, southern Africa.

NOTES. — Cohic (1952) proposed to introduce two species of Dactylopius  , D. ceylonicus ( Green, 1896)  and D. tomentosus ( Lamarck, 1801)  for biocontrol against Opuntia  spp., but was refused permission by the authorities. “ D. tomentosus  ” was finally introduced deliberately from Hawaii in 1957 ( Cohic 1962; Cochereau 1972; Gatimel 2004), but Cohic (1962) doubted the identity of the introduced species; he did not have the benefit of De Lotto’s later revision that clarified the confused status and identity of the various Dactylopius  species names ( De Lotto 1974). Williams & Watson (1990) identified specimens collected from New Caledonia by Cohic in 1960 as Dactylopius opuntiae  , not D. tomentosus  .
