Abstract:Hawaii has a long and successful history of coccinellid introductions for biological control of pest insects and powdery mildew. This paper discusses the names of five established species (Chilocorus nigrita (Fabricius), Hippodamia quinquesignata ambigua LeConte, Psyllobora vigintimaculata (Say), Sasajis- cymnus anomalus (Chapin), and Scymnus ambulans Blackburn), giving spelling corrections, changed generic combinations, and one new combination (Sasajis- cymnus anomalus (Chapin), n. comb.) to allow accurate usage of these names in the Hawaiian literature. Justification is also provided for the use of Hyperaspis pantherina Fursch which, until Nishida (2002), appeared in Hawaiian literature as Hyperaspis jocosa (Mulsant).
