This sugar cane aleurodid was found sparsely in small colonies on cane in a small field on the Sumay Road about two miles south of Piti , October 3, 17, 1936. At Mata, November 11, some larger colonies were found on a single stool of cane in a garden. They were attended by the "fire ant" ( Solenopsis geminata rufa). On Mt. Alifan, May 26, a colony was found on· the grass Paspalum conjugatum .

This aleurodid is known to infest sugar cane from Mauritius, Ceylon, Java, Philippines, Formosa, to Fiji and Samoa. This is the first record of it in Guam.
