FAUNISTIC STUDIES ON THE COCCIDAE ON ORNAMENTAL PLANTS IN ANKARA, TURKEY.

The coccid species present in parks, gardens and greenhouses in Ankara, Turkey, and their host plants were studied in 1992, ‘94, ‘95 and ‘96. Thirteen species of Coccidae were detected on ornamental plants: two species of Eulecanium, four species of Parthenolecanium and one species each from the genera Coccus, Filippia, Palaeolecanium, Physokermes, Pulvinaria, Saissetia and Sphaerolecanium. The most common species was Parthenolecanium corni, found on 36% of the infested ornamental plants. Physokermes picea was found on four species of Picea, of which it infested 16.3% of the plants surveyed. Filippia follicularis was detected on 2% of Fraxinus spp. while Physokermes piceae, Filippia follicularis, Parthenolecanium persicae and P. pomeranicum were recovered on 16, 2, 1 and 1% of the infested plants respectively.

Key words: Coccoidea, Coccidae, urban, ornamental plantings, hosts, geographic distribution.
