Takumasa Kondo, Nate Hardy
Abstract The soft scale insect Inglisia vitrea Cockerell is transferred to the genus Pseudokermes as P. vitreus (Cockerell) comb. nov. The adult female is redescribed and illustrated. A lectotype is designated based on newly slide-mounted dry type material. New host-plant records and an updated geographical distribution for P. vitreus are given. Pseudokermes correntinus Granara de Willink is recognized as syn. nov. of I. vitrea.
