- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae narrow, sides straight, apices slightly rounded, 2 sizes of setae scattered over surface, bases of some setae with associated microtubular ducts; suranal setae spatulate; microtubular ducts elongate, without sclerotized area (Hoy, 1962). Madarococcus rubrifagi is very similar to M. argentifagi. It is also similar to M. nelsonensis and M. nothofagi. The adult females of M. rubrifagi differ from those of M. nelsonensis by having the hind legs approximately as large as the fore and mid legs (hind legs much larger than fore and mid legs in M. nelsonensis). The adult female of M. rubrifagi can be distinguished from those of M. nothofagi by having caudal setae longer than the dorsoapical lobe setae (the opposite is true in M. nothofagi) and 7-segmented antennae (6-segmented in M. nothofagi). (Hardy, et al., 2008)
- Structure: Sac of female is tawny and felted (Hoy, 1962).
