Three species of Mexican soft scales, Neolecanium leucaenae Cockerell, Toumeyella cerifera Ferris and T. sonorensis Cockerell and Parrott, are redescribed based on the adult females and are transferred to Neotoumeyella gen. nov. as N. leucaenae (Cockerell) comb. nov., N. cerifera (Ferris) comb. nov. and N. sonorensis (Cockerell and Parrott) comb. nov. Two new species, N. caliensis Kondo and Williams sp. nov. from Colombia and N. cephalanthi Kondo and Williams sp. nov. from the U.S.A, are described and illustrated based on the adult female. A key to the genera of New World Myzolecaniinae based on the adult female is provided. We designate lectotypes for N. leucaenae, T. cerifera and T. sonorensis.
Tres especies de escamas blandas mexicanas, Neolecanium leucaenae Cockerell, Toumeyella cerifera Ferris y T. sonorensis Cockerell and Parrott son redescritas en base a la hembra adulta y transferidas a Neotoumeyella gen. nov., como N. leucaenae (Cockerell) comb. nov., N. cerifera (Ferris) comb. nov. y N. sonorensis (Cockerell and Parrott) comb. nov. Dos nuevas especies, N. caliensis Kondo and Williams sp. nov. de Colombia y N. cephalanthi Kondo and Williams sp. nov. de EE.UU. se describen e ilustran basandose en la hembra adulta. Se provee una clave a nivel de género para la subfamilia Myzolecaniinae del Nuevo Mundo basada en la hembra adulta. Se designan lectotipos para N. leucaenae, T. cerifera y T. sonorensis.

This is the most author-friendly editing process I have experienced. The publishing process of this journal was a most pleasant and productive experience and it was fast and convenient.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
