Mealybug infesting Scaevola on Guam
Happy New Year to my fellow PestNetters.

A client sent me images and specimens of a severe mealybug infestation of Scaevola being grown as an ornamental on Guam.

My best guess is that the bug is Icerya aegyptiaca. I would appreciate any comments on this tentative identification. I have posted images on iNaturalist at:

All the Best,
