Several felt scale (Eriococcidae) lineages show deep, phylogenetically constrained, host use. The most diverse of these host-constrained lineages is Australian, associated with plants in the family Myrtaceae, and the most diverse sublineage within this group is associated with Eucalyptus. Here we use Bayesian analysis of morphological data to estimate relationships among the eucalypt-feeding species of this group. We identify an unusual species for which we erect the monotypic genus Heathcotia...[Show more]
