- Systematics: Crisicoccus strigilis seems to be closely related to C. echinodes Williams, 2004 (from the Philippines), the only other species in the genus, which is characterized by unusually thick, long dorsal setae. However, C. strigilis differs from C. echinodes in the presence of well-developed anal lobe cerarii, which are absent in C. echinodes. (Gavrilov, 2013)
- Structure: Adult female. Body broadly oval, slightly pyriform, about 2 mm long. Eyes each about 40 µm in diameter. Antennae each 8-segmented. Long, thick setae of different sizes scattered on dorsum and along the ventral margin. Flagellate setae of different sizes scattered on the venter. (Gavrilov, 2013)
