Aleurodicus maritimus Hempel 

( Figs 7View FIGURES 5–8, 26)

Aleurodicus maritimus Hempel, 1922b: 1160–1161  . Syntypes, Brazil [MZUSP, examined].

Aleurodicus linguosus Bondar, 1923: 76–78  . Syntypes, Brazil [USNM, examined]. Synonymised by Costa Lima, 1928: 133.

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region - Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panamá, Surinam, Trinidad.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. Syntypes of A. maritimus  and A. linguous  as discussed below ( MZUSP, USNM); numerous samples from all countries listed above ( BMNH).

COMMENTS. The author was able to examine syntypes of both A. linguosus  and A. maritimus  through the kindness of USNM and MZUSP, respectively, in connection with an earlier study of aleurodicine whiteflies in Belize ( Martin, 2004). Costa Lima (1928) considered A. linguosus  to be a junior synonym of A. maritimus  , and his opinion is considered sound by the present author.

A. maritimus  is a member of the capiangae  / dugesii  species-group.
