- General Remarks: Best description and illustration by Ferris (1942).
- Biology: This species is found on the host "buried in the folds of the leaf about the hasta (Ferris, 1942)."
- Systematics: Colobopyga washingtoniae most closely resembles C. sabalis, but the adult female differs in possessing disc pores on the 7th abdominal segment, in the form of the antennae and in lacking the large spiracular plates of the other species. The second stage differs especially in not having the spiracles borne on ear-like processes (Ferris, 1942).
- Structure: Slide-mounted adult female about 0.75 mm long and oval, pygidial region not sharply demarked from the remainder of the body. Pygidium short and narrowly truncate or slightly rounded apically, bearing a pair of short, stout, slightly spatulate setae close together in the center apically. In addition to these several slender setae are present on the dorsal surface (Ferris, 1942).
