Abstract

In recent years, the mealybugs are found to infest sunflower crop in different sunflower-growing regions. Phenacoccus solenopsis (Tinsley), Maconellicocus hirsutus (Green) and Paracoccus marginatus (Williams and Granara de Willink) are known to attack sunflower in India. In Australia also, Ph. solenopsis was found attacking sunflower (http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/2614460.htm). Phenacoccus madeirensis (Green) is also known to infest sunflower).
