COMMENTS. Aleuronudus manni  is frequently encountered in the CFR, especially colonising members of the Rubiaceae  . Its puparia are extremely characteristic, with the anteriormost pair of abdominal compound pores much larger than the remainder ( Fig. 14), each of these very large pores secreting an exceptionally long filament (Fig. 133). Initially, its adults were confused with those of the then newly discovered Azuraleurodicus pentarthrus  (see below), which also colonises Guettarda combsii  , indicating the importance of rearing of adults for definite association with puparia ( Martin & Polaszek, 1999). The adult females of Al. manni  (Fig. 134) secrete exceptionally robust extrusions of wax, of brush­like appearance, from their abdominal wax plates (Fig. 115), which those of Az. pentarthrus  do not.
