Paraphyly of Homoptera and Auchenorrhyncha inferred from 18S rDNA nucleotide sequences
Evolutionary affiliations of eighteen families of Hemiptera (s.l.) are inferred using molecular phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide (nt) sequences of 18S rDNAs. Exemplar taxa include: Archaeorrhyncha… Expand
Description of a Species of Bemisia (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae)
Bemisia argentifolii Bellows & Perring, n. sp., is described from material collected in California and Florida. This species has been referred to elsewhere as B. tabaci strain B or B. tabaci… Expand
Evolutionary origin of whiteflies (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Aleyrodidae) inferred from 18S rDNA sequences
Phylogenetic analysis of 18S rDNA nucleotide sequences of hemipteran exemplars shows Sternorrhyncha (psyllids, whiteflies, aphids and scales) is monophyletic and forms a sister group to all other… Expand
First record of Glycaspis brimblecombei (Moore) (Homoptera: Psyllidae) in North America: initial observations and predator associations of a potentially serious new pest of eucalyptus in California.
A range extension of Homalodisca coagulata (Say) (Hemiptera: Clypeorrhyncha: Cicadellidae) to southern California.
California mealybugs can spread grapevine leafroll disease
UC Davis's Foundation Plant Materials Service (FPMS) maintains the disease-tested, professionally identified collection of grape scion and rootstock varieties, which is the core of the California… Expand
Systematics of Bemisia and Bemisia Relatives: Can Molecular Techniques Solve the Bemisia tabaci Complex Conundrum – A Taxonomist’s Viewpoint
The whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius), has a long history as a serious pest of agriculture worldwide. One of the most serious attacks began in 1985–1986 in Florida where very heavy populations… Expand
