Abstract

Metaxina ornata Broun is a rare and poorly known beetle species now in the monotypic family Metaxinidae. We offer this initial report on its association with margarodid scale insects, Ultracoelostoma assimile (Maskell), and sooty mold on southern beech, Nothofagus solandri (Hook. f.) Oerst., in hopes of assisting others in gathering additional information on this phylogenetically interesting species that is restricted to New Zealand.
