Koteja 1988 (Eriococcidae
Type species: Jutlandicoccus perfectus Koteja
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
Notes: We can see no basis for separating this genus from Eriococcus and note that Koteja (1988c) writes "I am quite aware that the described forms may belong to some recent genera or may even be synonymous with some recent species."
- Systematics: Generic characteristics that distinguish this genus from all other eriococcids are: the possession of dorsal medial plate; tibia shorter than tarsus; claw without denticle; dorsal setae hair-like; marginal setae enlarged (Koteja, 1988c). The description of this genus is based on the first instar only. In Kozár, et al., 2013 Jutlandicoccus was placed in the family Acanthococcidae Signoret, 1875, but is here kept in Eriococcidae because placement of species.outside of the palaearctic are unclear.
- Structure: Body is broadly oval, anal lobes tuberculiform, apically rounded with nodulate surface; dorsal medial plate present (Koteja, 1988c).
