accepted valid name
- Systematics: The genus Kalaginella differs from all the other mealybugs except Archanginella with reduced cerarii and anal apparatus in the presence of quinquelocular pores instead of multilocular and trilocular ones. However, these quinquelocular pores and tubular ducts in Archanginella and Kalaginella differ fundamentally. Tubular ducts simple, without collar. Quinquelocular
pores large, corresponding in size to usual multilocular pores of mealybugs in Kalaginella Tubular ducts with deep and wide collar almost totally closing the duct. Quinquelocular pores small, corresponding in size to usual quinquelocular pores of mealybugs in Archanginella.
- Structure: Female. Legs normally developed; claw without denticle. Ostioles and circuli absent. Anal apparatus simplified, only with several pores. Discoidal pores of one type-quinquelocular, similar in size to multilocular pores of other mealybugs. Tubular ducts simple. Cerarii and conical setae absent. Both sides of body with flagellate setae.
