Abstract: Development of the woolly whitefly, Aleurothrixus floccosus (Maskell) was observed on seedling lemon plants maintained at ambient temperature (ave. 22.5°C) and relative humidity. Total developmental lime from egg-to-adult averaged 27.4 ± 2.2 d. Peak adult emergence occurred between 0600 and 0900. Developmental rates and peak time of adult emergence were similar to those of other whiteflies recorded in literature. Oviposition began within 1 day after emergence and averaged 53.2 ± 9.3 eggs/female. Average adult longevity was 36.4 ± 13.6 d.
