Koteja, 1988 (Eriococcidae
Type species: Balticococcus oblicus Koteja
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
Notes: We can see no basis for separating this genus from Eriococcus and note that Koteja (1988c) writes "I am quite aware that the described forms may belong to some recent genera or may even be synonymous with some recent species."
- Systematics: First-instar nymph with: dorsal enlarged setae across abdominal segments; about 5 setae on apical antennal segment (Koteja, 1988c). In Kozár, et al., 2013 Balticococcus was placed in the family Acanthococcidae Signoret, 1875, but is here kept in Eriococcidae because placement of species.outside of the palaearctic are unclear.
- General Remarks: This genus contains two fossil species both found in Baltic amber (Koteja, 1988c). It is based on the first instar only.
