Recently, the senior author discovered the presence of a whitefly on sugarcane, Saccharum officinalis , in Qena, Egypt, and sent specimens to the junior author who identified it as Bemisia formosana Takahashi (Homoptera: Alyerodidae). Since this is the first report of this species occurring on sugarcane, an economic crop, and the first distribution record of it occurring in Egypt and the Mediterranean region, we thought it expedient to publicize the information to alert workers in the region to its presence.
