Valid Names ResultsMadarococcus fagicorticis (Maskell, 1892) (Eriococcidae: Madarococcus)
- Eriococcus fagicorticis Maskell 1892: 27. Type data: NEW ZEALAND: South Island, Reefton District, on Fagus fusca. Lectotype, female, by subsequent designation (DeitzTo1980,46). Type depository: Auckland: New Zealand Arthropod Collection, Landcare Research, New Zealand; accepted valid name Notes: The lectotype female of this species was lost during curatorial remounting. There is some probable paralectotype material in the NZAC: 1, a slide with one adult female and the data: ‘Eriococcus fagicorticis / Maskell spare material / X Nothofagus / June 1939’ [date of Brittin’s slide-mount] and 2, a Maskell original of a neonate 1st-instar nymph labelled: ‘Eriococcus fagicorticis / larva/ 1890 / W.M.M.’. Hoy (1962a) illustrated and redescribed the adult female of this species. Miller and Gimpel (2000) incorrectly list York Bay as part of the type data. In his list of specimens examined, Hoy (1962a) states that one specimen from York Bay was collected by D. Miller in 1922; thus it is not part of the type series. (Hardy, et al., 2008) Illustr.

- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae narrow, apices slightly rounded or acute, marginal setae slightly larger than others on dorsum, abundant over surface, with 2 or 3 setae on lateral margin of each abdominal segment; microtubular ducts moderate in length, with no sclerotization; suranal seta spatulate (Hoy, 1962).
- Structure: Female sac is white and accompanied by much black fungus. Male sac is white, elongated, narrow and slightly convex. Adult female red, filling test, but shrivelling at gestation. First-instar nymph red, flattish, active. Adult male unknown (Maskell, 1892).
