Type species: Borchseniococcus duzgunesae Kaydan & Kozár
accepted valid name
- Systematics: The genus shows some similarities with Pseudochermes Nitsche, namely the undeveloped anal lobes, sclerotized anal ring, and the setose hair-like setae on dorsum. In Kozár, et al., 2013, Borchseniococcus was placed in the family, Acanthococcidae Signoret, 1875, but is here kept in Eriococcidae because placement of species outside of the palaearctic are unclear.
- Structure: The genus Borchseniococcus is unique in having the following combination of characters (1) reduced anal lobes, (2) reduced anal ring, (3) spine-like setae absent, and (4) dorsal multilocular pores absent.
Adult female: Venter. antennae 7 segmented; frontal tubercle present. Multilocular pores, each with 5-10 loculi and macrotubular ducts both present in small numbers, scattered over derm. Legs short, with tibia shorter than tarsus. Claw with denticle. All coxae with spinulae; posterior coxae also with small pores. Microtubular ducts absent. Cruciform pores present on submargin of thorax. Ventral setae short and hair-like. Dorsum: Spine-like setae absent. anal lobes not well developed; dorsal surface of each lobe with two hair-like setae, ventral surface of each lobe with a short apical seta and shorter subapical seta. Anal ring sclerotized but not well developed and lacking anal ring pores but ith six strong setae, all shorter than diameter of ring. Cauda absent. Macrotubular ducts heavily sclerotized, each with inner ductules ending in a simple sclerotized pore; terminal gland not observed. Microtubular ducts few, short.
- Biology: Feed on the roots of herbaceous plants (Kozár, et al., 2013)
