- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae recessed in dermal pocket, nipple shaped, sides convex basally, concave near apex, apices rounded, all setae approximately same size, scattered over dorsum; hair-like setae scattered over dorsal surface; anal lobes protruding slightly, without enlarged setae; anal ring with pores; dorsal multilocular pores present; ventral multilocular pores predominantly with 5 loculi; cruciform pores present; antennae 7-segmented; microtubular ducts medium in length, with 2 sclerotized areas (Miller & McKenzie, 1967).
- Structure: Adult female oval, rotund; with no sign of dorsal ridge. Body grayish purple, legs white. Small amounts of white mealy secretion on both surfaces. Large amounts of filamentous ovisac secretion produced along ventral body margins and completely covering dorsum. Adult male sac found. (Miller & McKenzie, 1967).
- Biology: Found on crowns of host plant, not under bark (Miller & McKenzie, 1967).
- General Remarks: Best description and illustrated by Miller & McKenzie (1967). The “nymph” described in that paper is not conspecific with O. johnsoni because it has a non-cellular anal ring. In other species the structure of the anal ring remains relatively constant in the adult and immature female instars and the second-instar male. The second-instar female and male and the first-instar nymph are described in Miller & Stocks (2022).
