Remarks

Stunted growth. This mealybug is usually sometimes found on the stem just below ground level, on the root crowns, on the stem buds, and underneath the leave. The leaves often turn red at the base as a result of the insects' presence. Sooty moulds often develop in severe infestations, and ants are associated.
