Coccophagoides Girault (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) of Egypt with new species, Coccophagoides aegypticus Abd-Rabou sp.nov
Females of the genus Coccophagoides Girault (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) are primary endoparasitoids of armored scale insects (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) and the males are obligate secondary ectoparasitoids of the prepupae and pupae of their females. The aim of this work is to study Genus Coccophagoides in Egypt. During the present work, a list of three species was recorded in Egypt. Coccophagoides aegypticus Abd-Rabousp.nov. is also described here as a new species as well as a constructed key of the Egyptian member of this genus.
