The Soft Scale Insects of Florida (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Coccidae)
By Avas B. Hamon and Michael L. Williams
Florid Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, Division of Plant Industry, 1984
"This scholarly treatment of the soft scales of Florida by Hamon and Williams fulfills a need which has grown over a period of many years. It provides a reference useful both for field identification of some species of soft scales and for the accurate identification in the laboratory of all species known to occur or which are likely to be found in Florida. This publication should be useful in the identification of scales over an area much greater than Florida, as the dichotomous keys are not restricted to those species known to occur in Florida. This is the first definitive treatment of the soft scales of Florida and neighboring parts of the United States." Howard V. Weems, Jr., 1984
