scientific name

Planococcus ficus
status

 

ficus   caricae ( Fabricius, 1794: 225)   , Coccus  

This combination was made by Olivier (1791: 93). Fernald (1903: 156) erroneously cited this trinomen as Coccus caricae   as did Morrison & Renk (1957: 20). Olivier quoted Bernard (1773) as the author, but Bernard (1773: 89) discussed the vernacular name Kermes   du figuier. Olivier’s name was credited to Fabricius by Boyer de Fonscolombe (1834: 205) and first suggested that the name Coccus ficus caricae   might possibly be the same as Coccus rusci Linnaeus. Current   status: Signoret (1869: 847) treated the name as a junior synonym of Ceroplastes rusci   (L.).
