To determine the species of whiteflies infesting Chinese bayberry, Myrica rubra Sieb. et Zucc. (Fagales: Myricaceae), in China, we collected samples from eight provinces (Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Anhui, Hubei, Fujian, Guizhou, and Yunnan) from 2014 through 2017. Six species representing six genera of the subfamily Aleyrodinae were identified, namely Aleurocanthus spiniferus (Quaintance), Aleurolobus szechwanensis Young, Aleuroplatus pectiniferus Quaintance & Baker, Cohicaleyrodes caerulescens (Singh), Dialeuropora brideliae (Takahashi), and Parabemisia myricae (Kuwana). Information on the pest status, illustrations, distribution worldwide, and hosts of each of these six species is provided.
