Cocoa Mealybug

Cacao    Nigeria

Hello,
I have read many articles with different scientific names and pictures for cocoa mealybug. I have also seen the species shown in your article on the pest of cocoa tree.
How did you come about the name cocoa mealybug, is it because it was found on a cocoa tree or a moecular identification was done?
Thanks

It was identified based on visual characters and the place it was found (on a cocoa pod)
