Aleurodicus machili Takahashi, 1931: 208   . Syntypes, Taiwan [TARI, not examined].

Aleurodicus formosanus Takahashi, 1932: 7   . Syntypes, Taiwan [TARI, not examined]. Synonymised by Mound & Halsey, 1978: 234.

Aleurodicus philomenae   David, 1987: 1247. Holotype puparium, India (Maharashtra)   [depository not stated, not examined]. Synonymised by David & Selvakumaran, 1990: 139.

DISTRIBUTION. Oriental Region – Hong Kong, India, Taiwan.

MATERIAL EXAMINED (all BMNH). Puparia , third-instar nymphs and adult females from several samples, Hong Kong, on Litsea   and Machilus species   , 1990-2003 (Martin); 4 puparia, 3 adult males, 2 adult females, Taiwan, 1986 & 2006 (Ko)   .

COMMENTS. This species is common on Machilus   , Litsea   and some other members of the Lauraceae   in Hong Kong and Taiwan, where the immature stages tend to develop against the lower midribs of leaves, and is also recorded from India. This species will probably prove to be more widely distributed in the more temperate parts of the Oriental Region.

The synonymy of formosanus   with machili   arose because Takahashi had described a third-instar nymph as formosanus   , mistakenly regarding it as a puparium of a distinct species ( Mound & Halsey, 1978). The synonymy of A. philomenae   with A. machili   was drawn to the attention of David & Selvakumaran by Louise Russell (USNM), as they acknowledged in their short communication (1990).
