Scale insects (Hemiptera: Coccoidea) of Upper Silesia
Polish Journal of Entomology (Polskie Pismo Entomologiczne) 80 (2), 231-244
Abstract: Faunistic research conducted in Poland for over 80 years has led to the discovery of 143 species of scale insects that live in the natural environment. The state of knowledge of the coccoid fauna of individual areas is uneven, however, 83 species of scale insects from 8 families were collected in Upper Silesia (Górny Śląsk). Upper Silesia is the region in Poland with the fourth-largest number of species; it is preceded by the Kraków-Wieluń Upland (94 species), Roztocze (88) and the Świętokrzyskie Mts. (86). Two of the species collected in this area - Trionymus hamberdi and Volvicoccus stipae - are known only from this region. The paper gives a list of scale insect species collected in Upper Silesia together with information on their localities.
