Aleurodicus maritimus Hempel 

( Figs 7, 74)

Aleurodicus maritimus Hempel, 1922 b: 1160  –1161. Syntypes, Brazil [examined]. Aleurodicus linguosus Bondar, 1923 a: 76  –78. Syntypes, Brazil [examined]. [Synonymised by Costa Lima, 1928: 133.]

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region — Belize, Brazil, Guyana, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panamá, Surinam, Trinidad.

COMMENTS. The author was able to examine syntypes of both A. linguosus  and A. maritimus  through the kindness of USNM and MZUSP, respectively. Costa Lima (1928) considered A. linguosus  to be a junior synonym of A. maritimus  , and his opinion is considered sound by the present author.

A. maritimus  is one of the most frequently observed Aleurodicus  species in the CFR, feeding on a range of host plants. Extrapolating from the recorded distribution, above, this species is certain to occur through much of the Neotropical Region.
