Abstract

The citricola scale, Coccus pseudomagnoliarum (Kuwana) (Hemiptera: Coccidae) is recorded first time in Hungary in urban habitat, on common hackberry (Celtis occidentalis L.). Medium and high level infestations were recorded in Kecskemét and in Budapest alongside major roads and low level infestations in parks. We presume that this species has been in urban environment more than 10 years. Further observations and study of natural enemies of the species are in progress.
