- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae slender, short, apices slightly rounded, setae all approximately same size, dorsal setae uncommon, 2 or 3 marginal setae on lateral area of each abdominal segment; large bare areas on dorsum; suranal setae spatulate (Hoy, 1962). Hoy (1962a) erroneously described the adult female of M. detectus as having dorsal macrotubular ducts, but macrotubular ducts are confined to marginal and submarginal zones of the venter. Madarococcus detectus appears to be most closely related to M. montifagi, with both species having a rotund body shape, lacking dorsal macrotubular ducts and having a conspicuous pit near the anterior margin of the dorsal surface of each anal lobe. M. detectus is easily distinguished from M. montifagi by having several enlarged dorsal setae (M. montifagi has only minute setae on the dorsum). (Hardy, et al., 2008)
- Structure: Female is brown to green in color and apparently does not form a sac (Hoy, 1962).
