Dr. Sunil Joshi (Division of Insect Systematics, National Bureau of Agricultural Insect Resources, Bangalore Karnataka, India) kindly pointed out that the genus name used in Tanaka et al. (2021) was misspelt, and the paper also did not include Formicococcus tectonae Joshi, Bindu & Gullan, 2020 in the key to adult females of Formicococcus species in the Oriental region. We regret these mistakes. The corrected genus name of the species described in Tanaka et al. (2021) is “Formicococcus”, not “Formicoccus”. The specific name yoshinoi is deemed to have been published in combination with the original spelling Formicococcus under Article 188.8.131.52 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature 1999). Furthermore, the corrected key to adult females of Formicococcus species in the Oriental region is provided here.
