DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region — Belize, Barbados, Jamaica, Puerto Rico; Nearctic Region — Florida.

COMMENTS. M. griseus  is represented from Belize by a single parasitised puparium, collected from the upper midrib of an undetermined woody sapling host. Figs 26, 94 depict a complete puparium, in good condition, from Dade County, Florida, U.S. A.. Major  characters are 6 pairs of abdominal compound pores, the lingula fully included within the vasiform orifice, with a pair of basal lingular shoulders, with loculate pores scattered across the dorsal disc, and with the compound pores on posterior abdominal segments presenting axially to the viewer – see key to Belize species of Metaleurodicus  , above.
