First report of B-biotype Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) in Australia.

Abstract

B-type Bemisia tabaci was detected in Australia for the first time in October 1994. The insects were identified by esterase isoenzyme patterns. The initial identifications were made in B. tabaci collected from a rock melon crop in Darwin, Northern Territory, and from Euphorbia pulcherrima in Tamworth, New South Wales.
