- Biology: Develops on the roots of the host plant, and reported to cause decline and death of the plants (Froggatt, 1904).
- Economic Importance: Froggatt (1904) reported from New South Wales, Australia, that this mealybug caused the decline and death of plants of Cyperus rotundus, a weed of economic significance in Australia. He also reported on attempts to introduce the coccid into other areas for the purpose of controlling the weed. Attempts to introduce the coccid to Queensland were stopped, as it was suspected that the coccid might become a pest of cultivated crops.
- General Remarks: Good description and illustration of the adult female given by Green (1904c), Laing (1925a), Yang & Kosztarab (1967) and by Williams (1985). Good description and illustration of the first-instar nymph given by Yang & Kosztarab (1967).
