- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae elongate, conical, sides straight, apices slightly rounded, in small numbers on head, thorax and marginal areas of abdomen, without setae in medial and mediolateral areas of posterior abdominal segments; anal lobe with 2 enlarged setae on mesal margin, slightly smaller than other dorsal setae, enlarged setae on lateral margin unusually small and inconspicous; suranal setae spatulate; microtubular ducts elongate, without sclerotized area (Hoy, 1962). This species is similar to M. argentifagi, M. rubrifagi, and M. nelsonensis. Each of these species has the following combination of features: 1, pairs of minute setae on the posterior abdominal segments; 2, absence of a marginal fringe of enlarged setae but a characteristic arrangement of dorsal setae on the posterior abdominal segments: one enlarged seta on the margin of each abdominal segment plus one enlarged seta just medial of the margin, and 3, numerous macrotubular ducts on the dorsum and ventral submargin. M. nothofagi can be easily distinguished from the other three species by the short apical lobe (caudal) setae, which are shorter than the dorsoapical lobe setae. This feature also is found in the Australian species M. cunninghamii. (Hardy, et al., 2008)
- Structure: Sac of female is grey and waxen (Hoy, 1962).
