Figure 6. Two pupae of the Cardin's whitefly, Metaleurodicus cardini (Back). The photograph also shows two adults (with wings — in the lower center and left) and two nymphs (more of an orange color), one in the upper right and a second, smaller one, directly below it. The two pupae (one between the adults and the topmost nymph, and the other to the right) are yellowish-white and have red eye-spots. Photograph by: Lyle J. Buss, University of Florida
