- Systematics: Mixorthezia kozari differs from M. dominicana as follows: by the third antennal segment being relatively shorter (35.5% vs 41% of total antennal length) and the apical seta significantly longer than subapical seta (vs apical subapical setae of subequal lengths in M. dominicana), marginal wax lobes much more developed than submedian and median lobes (vs marginal wax lobes as developed as submedian and median lobes in M. dominicana), and frontal lobes fused (vs separated). (Vea & Grimaldi, 2012)
- Structure: Adult female. Body elongate oval, dorsoventrally flattened. Antennae 4-segmented, inserted at frontal margin ventrally, distance between antennae 80 ìm, with slightly clavate apical segment. Eyestalks protruding. Wax lobes well developed but transparent due to preservation; consisting of nine marginal lobes, a frontal lobe barely protruding from body margin, caudal lobe protruding from anal ring. Dorsal wax lobes consist of eight submedian and eight paramedian pairs, all symmetrical and arranged segmentally from head to abdominal segments. (Vea & Grimaldi, 2012)
