Do you know a whitefly expert?
Solomon, thank you for working on Bugguide.net. I came up with the tentative ID of Aleyrodes spiraeoides based on the images and descriptions found on the University of California website http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7401.html:
--the plant supporting the white fly colony is bearded iris
--the waxy circle (see photo 1991337)
--dots on the wings
I hope one of the other volunteers can confirm my identification. If so, this would be the first Aleyrodes spiraeoides on Bugguide.net.
