Abstract

A new mealybug species, Stipacoccus torosae Kaydan & Kozar sp. nov. (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae), is described and illustrated based on the adult female, which was collected from Cynodon dactylon L. (Poaceae) at Ankara in Turkey. Following examination of the type material of Pararhodania armena Ter-Grigorian, 1964 and recently collected specimens from Van, Turkey, the adult female of this species is redescribed and re-illustrated. Both species are new records for the Turkish scale insect fauna (Hemiptera: Coccoidea).
