Name changes for whiteflies

Taxonomic revision of the whitefly genera Dialeurodes, Singhiella and Massileurodes has led to the following name changes:
- Dialeurodes citrifolii is now called Singhiella citrifolii
- Dialeurodes setiger is now Massilieurodes setiger
- Dialeurodes chittendeni is now Massilieurodes chittendeni
Dialeurodes citri and D. kirkaldyi remain unchanged.
