Cornoculus was determined to be a junior synonym of Ovaticoccus by Miller & Stocks, 2022, leading to this new species combination.

- General Remarks: Described and illustrated by Miller & McKenzie (1967). Ferris, 1955a, also has a detailed description. Second-instar female described and illustrated by Miller & Stocks, 2022.
