Aleurodicus guppyii Quaintance & Baker  

(Figs 62, 138)

Aleurodicus guppyii Quaintance & Baker, 1913: 59   . Syntypes, Trinidad [BMNH, examined].

Aleurodicus guppyi Quaintance & Baker   : Martin & Watson, 1998: 91; Martin & Mound, 2007: 50 [unjustified emendation].

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region – Trinidad.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. 2 syntype puparia, Trinidad, Port of Spain, on Rheedia latiflora   , received 25.v.1911 (F.W.Urich, Q. 6717) ( BMNH ex-USNM, B.M. 1998-131)   .

COMMENTS. This species is only known from its original material. Two syntype puparia are present in BMNH, but are not in ideal condition, the nature of the simple pores not being clear. However, it is clear that there is no band of modified 8-shaped pores between the puparial margin and the submarginal band of widerimmed pores (see couplet 26 of key to Aleurodicus species   , p. 18, and fig. 62), and this character distinguishes A. guppyii   from the similar A. juleikae   . The distinct pigmented patch in the middle of the forewing (Fig. 138) is a useful diagnostic feature.
