The Commission has conserved the usage of the family-group name pseudococcini Cockerell, 1905 (type genus Pseudococcus Westwood, 1840) for the mealybugs, a speciose group including many pests of agriculture, by giving it precedence over the senior family-group name sphaerococcini Cockerell, 1899 (type genus Sphaerococcus Maskell, 1892).
