Paraleyrodes proximus Terán 

( Figs 51–52)

Paraleyrodes proximus Terán, 1979: 170  –174. Holotype (adult male), Argentina.

DISTRIBUTION. Neotropical Region — Belize, Argentina, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru.

COMMENTS. This is a little­known member of the genus, but its presence in Belize is confirmed by the characteristic aedeagal apex of the male ( Fig. 52), which is the least developed amongst known Paraleyrodes  species. However, the puparia ( Fig. 51) are not very distinctive, being similar to poor published descriptions of those of P. goyabae (Goeldi)  , and are unsafe to identify in isolation. Illustrated here are the aedeagus of a male and the vacated pupal case of the same individual.
