Abstract: Here we report new taxonomic findings of aphids (Aphidoidea) and scales (Coccoidea) for Ilhéu Chão (Desertas Islands, Madeira Archipelago). Protaphis pseudocardui (Theobald, 1915) is for the first time reported to Madeira archipelago while the aphids Aphis craccivora, A. gossypii, A. umbrella and Uroleucon sonchi, and the scales Coccus cf. hesperidum, Icerya purchasi, Pulvinaria urbicola, Saissetia coffeae and S. oleae are new findings to the Desertas Islands. We also provide information on the host plant associations of these phytophagous insects. Our results highlight the need for further research on the insect fauna of Desertas Islands.
