- Systematics: Anisococcus granarae is most similar to A. erbi and A. parasitus in having oral collar tubular ducts of two sizes on the dorsum. However, A. granarae can be readily distinguished from A. erbi in having: (i) oral collar tubular ducts of two sizes on the venter, and (ii) 16 cerarii on body margins (13 –15), and from A. parasitus in having: (i) oral collar tubular ducts of two sizes on the venter (A. parasitus has oral collar tubular ducts of only one size), and (ii) ventral oral collar tubular ducts present in rows across medial areas of the abdominal segments (not in rows on A. parasitius). (Pacheco da Silva, et al., 2016) No intraspecific variation was observed at COI (35 replicates). No BLAST hit with high similarity (> 95%) was obtained with GenBank. (Pacheco da Silva, et al., 2016)
- Structure: Body oval, up to 4 mm long at maturity, covered in a layer of white wax; with two longitudinal lines of dorsal patches without wax on the intersegmental areas of the abdomen, exposing areas of dark gray-to-black subcutaneous pigment. The margins have 14 small thin lateral filaments plus a long filament produced by anal lobe cerarii. (Pacheco da Silva, et al., 2016)
