Paraleyrodes citricolus  Costa Lima

( Figs 46 –47, 109, 112, 126)

Paraleyrodes citricolus  Costa Lima, 1928: 136. Holotype, presumed Brazil but not stated.

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region — Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panamá; Palaearctic Region — Azores, Madeira.

COMMENTS. P. citricolus  is probably the Paraleyrodes  species most frequently encountered in the CFR. The puparia have the cephalic and posterior four abdominal pairs of compound pores ( Figs 46–47, 112) very large (outer diameter of each compound pore usually 45–55 µ m), its central lumen with a cellular pattern. These large compound pores secrete long filaments that are characteristically thick and frayed in appearance (Fig. 126).

The typical male aedeagus is shown in Fig. 109, but the few males seen from Belize have the ventrally directed cluster of spines somewhat reduced.
