The first Australian records of mango shield scale (Milviscutulus mangiferae) from north Queensland and additional records from parts of Papua New Guinea are presented. The majority of specimens were collected from mango leaves (Mangifera indica). A summary of its known distribution, other hosts, identification and damage levels is also presented. Also, the detection of rice mealybug (Brevennia rehi) in far north Queensland is reported for the first time. This pest is known to occur in the Northern Territory. The north Queensland detections are from native grasses. The records presented here, for both species, are regarded as new detections, rather than new incursions.
