Abstract
There are two, possibly more, species of Lacebugs which attack coffee. In Kenya only one species has s~ far been found, Habrochila ghesquieri Schout. In Uganda two species occur, H. ghesquirei and H. placida Horv, and both are found in the Belgian Congo. It is thought tha H. placida is a pest of coffee at the lower altitudes and for this reason Coffea robusta is usually attacked by it, whereas H. ghesquierei is more important as a pest on C. Arabica. Bo can attack both species of coffee and the is some overlap in their distribution. There is apparently no difference in the type of damage they do.
