Citrus whitefly

Dialeurodes citri

Whiteflies are tiny, flying insects that derive their name from the mealy white wax covering their wings and body. While adult whiteflies are similar in appearance, the immature stages are more distinctive. The pupa and other immature stages of the woolly whitefly are covered with curly, waxy filaments and are exclusively found on the undersides of leaves; pupae of the bayberry whitefly have a clear wax fringe around the body margin; pupae of the citrus whitefly have a distinctive Y-shape on their backs; and pupae of the ash whitefly have a thick band of wax down the back and a fringe of tiny tubes, each with a liquid droplet at the end.
