Aleurodicus araujoi Sampson & Drews  

( Figs 1 View FIGURES 1–4 , 21)

Aleurodicus araujoi Sampson & Drews, 1941: 145   . Syntypes, Mexico [UCD, examined].

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region – Belize, Costa Rica, Mexico.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. Syntype puparia, Mexico, Manzanillo , on Aristolochia sp.   , xii.1925 ( UCD)   ; numerous samples, Belize, host records tabulated by Martin (2004) ( BMNH, USNM)   ; quarantine-interception material, Costa Rica ( USNM)   .

COMMENTS. Numerous samples of Belizean material of A. araujoi (BMNH)   have been identified in comparison with syntypic material from Mexico, loaned by UCD in connection with a study of Aleurodicinae   in Belize ( Martin, 2004), in which publication host plant records in Belize were tabulated. This species clearly belongs to the capiangae   / dugesii   group, and may be recognised by use of the key to species, p. 15.

A sample of puparia from mistletoe in Costa Rica (BMNH) has its puparia rather darkly pigmented, and other slight differences from the extensive Belizean material, but is considered likely to be conspecific.
