Abstract

Two new species of whiteflies are described and illustrated based on specimens intercepted at US Ports-of-Entry. Aleurolobus tomkinsae Dooley & Smith-Pardo sp. nov. was intercepted on the leaves of Bergera koenigii Linnaeus (Rutaceae) from India and Sri Lanka and on Magnolia L. (Magnoliaceae) from Thailand. Asialeyrodes lateropapilliformis Dooley & Smith-Pardo sp. nov. was intercepted on the leaves of Syzygium P. Browne ex Gaertn (Myrtaceae) from Indonesia. Keys to the species of the genus Asialeyrodes Corbett 1935 and to the whitefly species found on Bergera koenigii and Syzygium are also provided.

Se describen e ilustran dos especies nuevas de Aleyrodidae, a partir de especímenes interceptados en puertos de entrada a los EE.UU. Aleurolobus tomkinsae Dooley & Smith-Pardo sp. nov. fue interceptada en Bergera koenigii L. (Rutaceae) provenientes de la India y Sri Lanka y Magnolia Linnaeus (Magnoliaceae) de Tailandia. Asialeyrodes lateropapilliformis Dooley & Smith-Pardo sp. nov. fue interceptada en hojas de Syzygium P. Browne ex Gaertn (Myrtaceae) provenientes de Indonesia.
