Technical Abstract: The stylet bundle of the adult whitefly, Bemisia argentifolii, is completely contained within a groove in the labium. The adult lowers its head in order to push the tip of the stylet bundle into the leaf. The length of the adult stylet bundle is sufficient to allow the adult to reach a vein, phloem tissue, from any position on the leaf, either abaxial or adaxial surfaces.
