accepted valid name
- Systematics: Coxicoccus genus similar to Eriococcus by one pair of labial setae on basal segment, by long, bicurcated microtubular ducts, by absence of cruciform pores. It is also similar to Acanthococcus genus, having enlarged spine-like setae on dorsum, by presence of micro- and macrotubular ducts. Coxicoccus differs from Eriococcus by absence of enlarged tubular ducts, by absence of frontal lobes, by presence of pores on the posterior coxae, femur and tibia. It differs from Acanthococcus by absence of cruciform pores, by absence of frontal lobes and cauda, by presence of one pair of setae on basal segment of labium. It differs from both genera by clavate ventral setae and longer than anal lobe clavate suranal setae.
- Structure: Antennae seven segmented; frontal lobe, or tubercle absent. Labium one segmented, basal segment of labium with one pair of setae. Venter with macrotubular ducts and five locular pores in small number scattered on all over the surface. Legs long, tibia shorter than tarsus. All coxae with spinulae, posterior coxae harbor numerous small pores. Microtubular ducts present. Cruciform pores absent. Part of ventral setae on last abdominal segments capitate, suranal setae longer than lobe, capitate, ventral surface of anal lobes with one short apical and a capitate subapical seta.
Spine like setae present on whole body. Anal lobes well developed, dorsal surface with three strong curved spines. Anal ring, sclerotized, not well developed, with eight setae twice longer than diameter of ring, few anal ring pores present. Cauda absent. Macrotubular ducts narrow, long; the inner ductule ends with a flower like terminal gland. Microtubular ducts few, long, with bifurcate oriface, very often dorsal spines with the microtubular ducts at the base. (Kozár & Konczné Benedicty, 2008)
