Topic: New Scale insect to the UK

Hi, can we get the Scale insect Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell, 1879) added to the inventory please. Found recently in south Wales and determined by Dr Chris Malumphy of FERA. He has informed Defra.

No problem Dave - will do! :)  As with so many non-natives this will need the genus to be created too
