Pseudococcus viburni (Signoret) - (obscure mealybug)
This mealybug is polyphagous and is believed to be native to the Americas. It now has a world-wide distribution. Most commonly infested are grapevine and fruit trees like apple, citrus and stone fruits. However, vegetable and ornamental are also often attacked. It might further transmit plant viruses like the Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 3 (da Silva et al., 2017).
The adult female is around 2-3 mm long. The reproduction can be sexually or parthenogenetically. Females pass through 3 nymphal stages and males through 4. One generation takes about 6 weeks.
