The following is a morphological investigation, supplemented by histological data, of the female reproductive system of the South African Citrus psylla, Trioza erytreae (Del Guercio). Although studies of the female reproductive system have been made for several species of psylla (Witlaczil, 1885 cited by Imms, 1957; Awati, 1915; Weber, 1930) no work has been done on the reproductive system of T. erytreae. The present study has been made to fill this gap and it forms part of a wider biological study of this economically important insect.
