Phenacoccus parvus Morrison is recorded from Florida for the first time. Specimens were collected at Miami on Cestrum diurnum (Solanaceae),l-IX-1883 by J. Frankel, and on an unidentified plant of the family Apiaciae (Umbelliferae), 4-XI-1983, by D. Barger. These records are also the first for the continental US. Phenacoccus parvus material from Hawaii on Sida fallax has been examined. This mealybug was described from the Galapagos Islands. Williams and Cox (1984) synonymized the name P. surinamensis with P. parvus. This species has been recorded from the West Indies, Central America, and South America on many hosts (Williams and Granara de Willink 1992). It has been recorded recently from Africa, the tropical South Pacific area, Australia, and southern Asia. The distribution was mapped, with references, by CAB International Institute of Entomology (1990).
