Abstract


FOSSILS COCCIDS DO EXIST.

Scale insects (Coccinea) have been discovered in almost all Tertiary and Cretaceous amber and in a few other deposits, and the number of known coccid fossils has increased from about 100 to approximately 900 in the last twenty years. This material represents a variety of forms and constitutes a reliable basis for serious palaeo-entomological studies.

Key words: fossil abundance, Eocene, Mesozoic, Cretaceous, Tertiary, Baltic amber, Ortheziidae, Xylococcidae, Matsucoccidae, Electrococcidae, Monophlebidae, Putoidae, Eriococcidae, Inkaidae, Kermesidae, Diaspididae.
