- Systematics: Ferrisia kondoi is most similar to F. williamsi and F. cristinae, but can be distinguished by lacking translucent pores on the hind coxa (present on coxa in other two species), having >60 trilocular pores on each anal lobe (=50 pores on each lobe of other two species), and having small oral-collar tubular ducts usually in tight segmental clusters on ventral margins of posterior abdominal segments with 0–7 on each side of segment VI, 6-25 on each side of VII, 8-21 on each side of VIII (these ducts either not forming tight clusters or in small clusters with each side of each segment usually with >6 ducts in other two species). F. kondoi can be distinguished from F. virgata by usually having clusters of small oral-collar tubular ducts on the ventral margins of the last 3 abdominal segments (present only on VII and VIII in F. virgata), and by having 1 or 2 discoidal pores adjacent to the duct opening for both enlarged ducts and ventral oral-collar tubular ducts (discoidal pores never adjacent to duct openings in F. virgata). F. kondoi can be separated from F. milleri and F. ecuadorensis by the absence of small clusters of oral-collar tubular ducts on the head, thorax and anterior abdominal segments, and the absence of translucent pores on the coxa. F. kondoi can be distinguished readily from F. uzinuri by having clusters of small oral-collar tubular ducts on the ventral margins of the posterior abdominal segments (absent in F. uzinuri), and by having ventral oral-collar tubular ducts of more than one size and generally longer dorsal setae (15-70 µm in F. kondoi, and 12-38 µm long in F. uzinuri). (Kaydan & Gullan, 2012)
- Structure: Ferrisia kondoi can be diagnosed by the following combination of features: presence of clusters of small oral-collar tubular ducts on ventral margins of last 2-3 abdominal segments; ventral oral-collar tubular ducts generally with a minute discoidal pore touching rim of duct opening; dorsal enlarged tubular ducts totalling 91–128 throughout dorsum, with 1 or 2 oval discoidal pores usually adjacent to rim of each duct opening; number of multilocular disc-pores on venter of abdominal segments as follows: segment VI (8-22), VII (22-38), and VIII + IX (20-37); anal lobe cerarii each with 2 conical setae; both pairs of ostioles present and pairs well developed; no translucent pores on hind coxa. (Kaydan & Gullan, 2012)
- Economic Importance: This species is common in Central and South America on a diversity of edible and ornamental plants, and often is intercepted by quarantine authorities at ports in the USA.
