(Figs 11, 30, 31)

Aleurodicus vinculus Martin, 2004: 30   View Cited Treatment . Holotype puparium, Belize [BMNH, examined.]

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region – Belize.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. Type material as detailed in description, Belize ( BMNH)   .

COMMENTS. Only a single sample comprising three puparia, and a further single specimen, are known, and these were initially tentatively identified as a variant of A. trinidadensis Quaintance & Baker. In   comparison with study material of A. trinidadensis   from Trinidad, the Belizean specimens have a much greater number of small septate pores on the dorsal disc, these arranged in distinct chain-like rows across the submedian areas of the cephalothorax and abdominal segments II-VIII; on the meso- and metathorax, there are two such chains of pores (Fig. 30). Without more study samples, the degree of variation in A. trinidadensis   is uncertain, but A. vinculus   is here considered to be distinct, defined by these chains of septate pores, and the species is a member of the capiangae   / dugesii   species-group.
