Number: 415, Pages: 1 - 8

A new whitefly, Cockerelliella setosus Dubey, sp. n., is described from the Little Andaman Island in Bay of Bengal. It was found infesting Aporosa octandra (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) Vickery (Pyllanthaceae). Puparia of the new species differ from all the described Cockerelliella species in having much longer cephalic and caudal setae compared to the eighth abdominal setae, combined with narrow submarginal ventral fold and submedian row of tubercles. Line drawings and microphotographs of holotype of the new species are given. An updated key to the puparia of Indian species of Cockerelliella is also provided.
