Planococcus citri


citri P.F. Gmelin, 1766   : column 41, Coccus  

This name appeared alongside the names Coccus hesperidum   and Pediculus clypeatus   but Gmelin was actually describing Coccus hesperidum   . Current status: we believe that Gmelin was listing earlier synonymy by Linnaeus (1746, 1748).
