Paraleyrodes bondari Peracchi, 1971 - (Bondar's nesting whitefly)

This nesting whitefly is native to South America, but is invasive in various other regions. For example, it has been recorded in Hawaii since 2003, in eastern Africa since 2006 (Abu Omongo, 2018), or in Florida since 2011 (Dickey et al., 2015).

P. bondari is polyphagous, infesting, crops like cassava or various tree crops like fig, avocado, citrus, soursop and coconut palm. However, reports of serious infestations and outbreaks are not common.
