- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae cylindrical, sides concave, apices rounded, all setae approximately same size, abundant over dorsum, 4 to 7 lateral setae on margin of each abdominal segment; suranal setae spatulate; microtubular ducts elongate, without sclerotized area (Hoy, 1962). Hoy (1962) inspected Maskell’s duplicate material labelled as Rhizococcus pulchellus. All material collected from N. solandri he recognised as M. pulchellus. The material collected from N. fusca he described as a new species, M. viridulus. The two species are very similar and both live on the leaves of their hosts. However, females of M. viridulus induce dimples on leaves, as described and illustrated by Henderson and Martin (2006), whereas females of M. pulchellus do not distort the foliage. (Hardy, et al., 2008)
- Structure: Body elongate oval, pale green in color with upstanding cover of white waxen tubes (Hoy, 1962).
- Biology: Presence of adult female leads to curling and distortion of leaf. Females do not form sacs (Hoy, 1962).
- General Remarks: Original description and illustration by Hoy (1962).
