Abstract

A list is given of the scale insects recorded on Macadamia throughout the world. A species of Eriococcus recorded from Macadamia in Queensland [RAE/A 60, 484] is described as E. ironsidei sp. n. Two new Diaspidids that infest Macadamia are described, Lepidosaphes macella sp. n. from New South Wales and L. macadamiae sp. n. from Queensland. Another Diaspidid from Macadamia in Queensland and Telopea speciosissima in New South Wales, referred to by W.W. Froggat (1914) on the authority of E.E. Green as Chionaspis eugeniae Mask. var. major but without description, is described as Pseudaulacaspis brimblecombei sp.n.
