accepted valid name
- Structure: Female mealybugs of the genus Leptococcus Reyne and Macrocepicoccus Morrison have unusually long legs and long slender claws. These mealybugs live on leaf surfaces and are probably parenchyma feeders (Miller and Denno 1977; Williams 2004; Kondo and Gullan 2008). Adult females and nymphs are very active when disturbed. Claws in all of these stages are long and slender.
- General Remarks: Good definition and characters given by Morrison (1919a), Miller & Denno (1977) and by Williams & Granara de Willink (1992).
