Aleurodicus flavus Hempel  

(Fig. 45)

Aleurodicus flavus Hempel, 1922a: 4   . Syntypes, Brazil [MZUSP, not examined].

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region – Brazil.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. 1 puparium, Brazil, 14.xii.1922 ( Bondar #359, Q. 23020) ( USNM); 5 puparia, Brazil, Bahia, received 15.viii.1923 (Bondar #491, Q. 23301) ( USNM); 4 puparia, Brazil, Olinda, Pernambuco, on Cocos nucifera   , i.1972 (Arruda) ( BMNH ex-USNM, B.M. 1998-131)   .

COMMENTS. Mound & Halsey (1978) listed both MZUSP and USNM as depositories for syntypes of A. flavus   . However, the USNM collection does not contain any type material (Debra Creel, personal communication). Two slides in USNM were donated by Bondar (see above). In the species description Hempel had noted that the original material had been sent to him for classification by Bondar, and it is therefore probable that these are part of the original material. However, the only certain type material resides in MZUSP, quoted as type #20,546 by Hempel. Other material has therefore been compared with the Bondar donation to USNM for determination purposes.

This species was discussed by Russell (1965), as part of her description of A. dispersus   . A. flavus   is very similar to A. dispersus   , but A. flavus   possesses a pair of tiny compound pores on abdominal segment VII (not mentioned by Hempel), and has notched simple pores extending across the median line on segment VII (Fig. 45), and on segment VIII posterior to the vasiform orifice. A. charlesi   , described here, is also a member of the dispersus   species-group, similarly with one pair of smaller compound pores present on abdominal segment VII, but these are considerably larger in charlesi   than in A. flavus   .
