Aspidiotus is a genus of armoured scale insects. It includes several agricultural and horticultural pests. A. destructor was originally blamed for a massive die-off of coconut trees in the Philippines, which began in 2009. He was previously involved in the death in Indonesia. In July 2014, after a detailed morphological review, scientists announced that instead of A. rigidus, was to blame. A. rigidus has few natural predators in the Philippines, which leads to the surging of infection.
