- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae cylindrical, sides slightly concave, apices truncate or rounded, all of approximately same size, abundant over surface, at least 1 microtubular duct associated with base of most enlarged setae; suranal setae spatulate; microtubular ducts medium in length, without sclerotized area (Hoy, 1962). Madarococcus maskelli is very similar to M. podocarpi. Both species have dorsal nodules with acute apices, a feature unique among species of Madarococcus except M. fagicorticis. A distinction between the two species can be made on the basis of the dorsal setae on the posterior abdominal segments. In M. maskelli all dorsal setae are approximately the same size, and the submedial areas on each side of each of segments VI and VII are occupied by one or more setae. In M. podocarpi, abdominal segments VI and VII have the medial pairs of setae much smaller than those on the rest of the dorsum, and the submedial areas are without setae. (Hardy, et al., 2008)
- Structure: Sac of female is white and felted (Hoy, 1962).
