The scale insect fauna of Romania is poorly known. Based on bibliographic sources and on collections made by the authors a complete checklist is presented. The number of scale insect species presented here from Romania is the following: 178 from outdoor and 29 species from indoor and greenhouse condition. The outdoor species belong to 9 families and 4 families for indoor species. The most numerous outdoor families were: Pseudococcidae (67 species), Coccidae (42 species), Diaspididae (37 species) and Eriococcidae (16 species). Most of the indoor species belong to: Diaspididae (20 species).The present paper contains data of 5 families and 28 species with collecting places, recording data.Three species were new for the scale insect fauna of the country:

The topographical position and size of the site, the number of detected houses, the presence of the early phase make the Apc-Berekalja I settlement one of the most significant sites of the LBK in Hungary. The ongoing processing of the excavation data provided already some very important observations. The geoarchaeological results demonstrated the presence of the in situ soil of the Neolithic period and effects of floods on the settlement. The study of the chipped and ground stone material coming from the Neolithic features revealed no conspicuous changes in the lithic industry of the settlement from the pre-Notenkopf to Želiezovce phases of the LBK. Lithic raw materials came exclusively from territories to the east of the site, which is an evidence of the isolation of the LBK groups that inhabited Apc.
