Duplachionaspis divergens (Hemiptera: Diaspididae), a new exotic pest of sugarcane and other grasses in Florida
Florida Entomologist 90 (2), 392-393
Abstract: Duplachionaspis divergens is established in Florida and has been intercepted in both Alabama and Texas, but its overall economic impact is yet unknown. However, due to its potential as a pest of sugarcane and other grasses, it warrants close observation to ensure that this insect does not become a major pest of grasses in the southeastern United States.
