- General Remarks: Detailed description in Hodgson & Williams, 2016.
- Systematics: The three species of Cerochiton are restricted to the Oriental Region, particularly the Philippines. (Hodgson & Williams, 2016)
- Structure: Species of Cerochiton share with species of Cerococcus the basic structure of the anal lobes (fleshy setae bullet-shaped; three setose setae along inner margin of each lobe; ventral seta near apex absent; anteroventral sclerotized areas on anal lobes absent). However, adult females of Cerochiton differ from those of Cerococcus in having: (i) a group of large 8-shaped pores, each pore sunken below derm surface, centrally in apex of each stigmatic pore band, each group with intermingling spiracular disc-pores, and with a ring of large 8-shaped pores around each apex but not down margins of stigmatic pore bands (structure of apex of each stigmatic pore band on Cerococcus simple, without an inner and outer ring of large 8-shaped poes); (ii) larger 8-shaped pores absent elsewhere on dorsum (larger 8-shaped pores present elsewhere on dorsum); (iii) smallest dorsal 8-shaped pores forming a lattice-like pattern on dorsum (2 species with a lattice-like pattern in Cerococcus); (iv) dorsum with two widths of tubular ducts, broader ducts present in a line on each side of each lattice-like line of small 8-shaped pores (broad dorsal tubular ducts, when present, restricted to a group medially on posterior abdominal segments).
