Ferrisia colombiana can be readily distinguished from other species in the genus by having a small number of enlarged dorsal tubular ducts; lacking clusters of small marginal oral-collar tubular ducts; having large discodial pores associated with the ventral oral-collar tubular ducts; and by the presence of multilocular disc pores on abdominal segment VI. Ferrisia colombiana is most similar to F. pitcairnia but the adult female of F. colombiana is usually much larger than those of F. pitcairnia, and slide-mounted specimens of F. colombiana can be distinguished readily from F. pitcairnia by the presence of translucent pores on the hind legs (absent in F. pitcairnia) and by having a higher number of ventral oral-collar tubular ducts (59-75 in F. colombiana and 15-23 in F. pitcairnia). (Kayday & Gullan, 2012)
- Structure: Ferrisia colombiana can be diagnosed by the following combination of features: absence of clusters of small oral-collar tubular ducts on ventral margins of abdominal segments; ventral oral-collar tubular ducts generally associated with 1 or 2 discoidal pores on derm around duct rim, each pore 4-5 µm in diameter and almost two times larger than duct opening; dorsal enlarged tubular ducts totalling 10-29 throughout dorsum, rim of each duct with 1 or 2 oval discoidal pores (sometimes 2 pores almost merged) usually associated with duct opening; number of multilocular disc pores on venter of abdominal segments as follows: V (0 or 1), VI (6-10), VII (14-22), and VIII + IX (8-14); both pairs of ostioles present and well developed.
