Abstract

 THE MEALYBUG PHENACOCCUS SOLENOPSIS TINSLEY IS A GEOGRAPHICALLY WIDELY DISTRIBUTED PEST THAT WAS UNKNOWN IN IRAN UNTIL ITS RECENT INVASION WITH POTENTIALLY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. A SURVEY OF THE MEALYBUG P. SOLENOPSIS DISTRIBUTION, HOST PLANTS AND NATURAL ENEMIES WAS CONDUCTED IN 2009 - 2015 IN IRAN. SAMPLES OF INFESTED HOST PLANTS WERE TRANSFERRED TO THE LABORATORY IN POLYTHENE BAGS AND WERE MAINTAINED AT ROOM TEMPERATURE (25±50C) AND R.H.45- 60%, FOR 4 WEEKS FOR FURTHER INSPECTION. TO DATE, 219 SPECIES BELONGING TO 159 GENERA AND 70 FAMILIES OF HOST PLANTS, AS WELL AS 30 SPECIES OF NATURAL ENEMIES OF THE MEALYBUG P. SOLENOPSIS, HAVE BEEN RECORDED. FIELD, LABORATORY AND GREENHOUSE STUDIES INDICATED THAT BETWEEN ALL ITS NATURAL PREDATORS, NEPHUS ARCUATUS KAPUR AND HYPERASPIS POLITA WEISE WERE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL AT REDUCING POPULATIONS OF P. SOLENOPSIS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE HYMENOPTEROUS PARASITOID AENASIUS BAMBAWALEI HAYAT HAS THE GREATEST POTENTIAL AS A CANDIDATE FOR USE IN THE CONTROL OF THE PEST.THIS IS THE FIRST REPORT OF AN ONGOING INVESTIGATION OF DISTRIBUTION OCCURRENCE OF P. SOLENOPSIS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF HORMOZGAN PROVINCE, IN IRAN. IT IS ALSO THE FIRST COMPREHENSIVE RECORD OF THE PRESENCE IN IRAN OF ITS HOST PLANTS AND NATURAL ENEMIES.
