- General Remarks: Detailed description and illustration of adult female, third-instar female and second-instar female by Miller & Williams (1995a).
- Systematics: This species can be separated from all other species of Micrococcus by the dorsomedial setae that are conspicuously longer than all other dorsal setae and by the large number of parastigmatic pores (about 300 on each side of the body)(Miller & Williams, 1995a).
- Structure: Slide-mounted adult female 1.9 mm long, 1.2 mm wide. Dorsum with filamentous setae scattered over surface; longest seta on dorsomedial area of metathorax 234µ long, dorsal setae vary from short to long. Marginal setae short. Small bilocular pores abundant over surface. Discoidal pores circular, scattered over surface, most abundant in marginal and submaringal areas (Miller & Williams, 1995a).
