by original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Original description and key to species by Kozár (2004).
Detailed description of adult male in Vea (2014).
- Systematics: Because Insignorthezia comprises 10 described species (Kozár, 2004), the description of the adult male in Vea, 2014 acts as the generic diagnosis. Adult female Insignorthezia are distinguished from Graminorthezia, Praelongorthezia and Orthezia by the absence of bands or rows of wax plates within the ovisac band. (Kozár, 2004).
- Structure: Mounted male: Moderately large, total body length 1.66-1.76 mm. Antennae exceptionally long, nearly 2 times total body length, most segments approximately subequal in length (vs. <1.3 times body length for all other species). Body with few setae; loculate pores of triangular shape, each 7-8 ìm wide, with mostly 3 loculi, occasionally 4, present on both dorsal surface. (Vea, 2014)
