System of generic groups in mealybugs (Homoptera: Coccinea: Pseudococcidae)

I.A. Gavrilov-Zimin

Abstract. The paper provides a brief conspectus of the system of morphological generic groups, elaborated earlier by the author basing on the total taxonomic revision of Palaearctic mealybugs. Here the system is complemented by the analysis of all 249 genera of the world fauna. Borders of two generic groups are reconsidered and two else groups (with mainly Oriental and Australasian genera) are included in the system. Main taxonomic characters of generic rank are discussed and illustrated.
Key words: scale insects, mealybugs, systematics, morphology, ovoviviparity
