Aleurotuberculatus manii: David, 1978   . Oriental Ins., 12 (1): 133.

Aleuroclava manii   ; Jesudasan and David, 1990. FIPPAT Ent. Ser., 2: 3.— Jesudasan and David, 1991. Oriental Ins., 25: 262.

Host plants. Homonoia riparia   , Fagaceae ( David, 1978)   .

Distribution. China, India ( David, 1978).

Material examined. China, Guangxi, Daming Mt., 3 puparium on 3 slides, on unidentified Fagaceae   , 13.viii. 2011, J. R. Wang ( YZU).

Remarks. David (1978) described and named this species after Dr. M.S. Mani who collected specimens on Homonoia riparia   . A series of protruding conspicuous papillae along the submargin is an important diagnostic character. Median tubercles on each abdominal segment I –VI. This species is close to A. subindica Martin & Mound   but differs in the absence of minute tubercles along the pro-mesothoracic, meso-metathoracic and first abdominal segment sutures and the detail of thoracic tracheal pore regions. It also resembles A. cardamom David and Subramaniam   but differs in details of vasiform orifice, tuberculation on abdominal segment, size of dorsal setae, granules on dorsum and the thoracic tracheal pore end being not notched. It also resembles Minutaleyrodes indicus Meganathan & David   in presence of a series of protruding conspicuous papillae along the submargin but differs in details of thoracic tracheal pore.
