Abstract


Sap-sucking insects (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha and Thysanoptera: Thripidae) collected in Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi were identified. From 28 samples collected on 9 crop and ornamental host-plant species, 21 species of sap-sucking insects were identified, 12 (57%) of which were new island distribution records. This suggests that the Indonesian insect fauna has not been documented for a long time. The new distribution records are: from Java, Lepidosaphes gloverii (Packard) (Diaspididae); from Sumatra, Clavaspidiotus apicalis Takagi (Diaspididae); and from Sulawesi, Coccus hesperidum L. (Coccidae), Saissetia coffeae (Walker) (Coccidae), Aulacaspis yasumatsui Takagi (Diaspididae), Hemiberlesia palmae (Cockerell) (Diaspididae), Lepidosaphes tokionis (Kuwana) (Diaspididae), Microparlatoria fici (Takahashi) (Diaspididae), Pseudaulacaspis cockerelli (Cooley) (Diaspididae), Icerya aegyptiaca (Douglas) (Monophlebidae), I. pulchra (Leonardi) (Monophlebidae) and Selenothrips rubrocinctus (Giard) (Thripidae). Clavaspidiotus apicalis could become a potentially invasive pest of citrus.

 

Se identificaron insectos chupadores de savia recolectados en Java, Sumatra y Sulawesi (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha y Thysanoptera: Thripidae). De las 28 muestras recolectadas sobre 9 especies de plantas hospederas de cultivos y plantas ornamentales, se identificaron 21 especies de chupadores, de estas, 12 (57%) fueron nuevos registros de distribución para las islas. Esto sugiere que la fauna de insectos de Indonesia no ha sido documentada por un largo tiempo. Los nuevos registros de distribución son: de Java, Lepidosaphes gloverii (Packard) (Diaspididae); de Sumatra, Clavaspidiotus apicalis Takagi (Diaspididae); y de Sulawesi, Coccus hesperidum L. (Coccidae), Saissetia coffeae (Walker) (Coccidae), Aulacaspis yasumatsui Takagi (Diaspididae), Hemiberlesia palmae (Cockerell) (Diaspididae), Lepidosaphes tokionis (Kuwana) (Diaspididae), Microparlatoria fici (Takahashi) (Diaspididae), Pseudaulacaspis cockerelli (Cooley) (Diaspididae), Icerya aegyptiaca (Douglas) (Monophlebidae), I. pulchra (Leonardi) (Monophlebidae) y Selenothrips rubrocinctus (Giard) (Thripidae). Clavaspidiotus apicalis puede llegar a ser una plaga potencialmente invasora de los cítricos.
