- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae nipple shaped, sides convex basally, concave near apex, apices slightly rounded, all setae approximately same size, scattered over surface, forming 3 longitudinal lines on each side of abdomen; 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). Chaffin (1923) described the male as having 4 wax filaments which is characteristic of mealybugs in the genus Phenacoccus. However, the body of the male is described as “bright carmine”, which would be more typical of an eriococcid. (Miller & Stocks, 2022) Goux (1948) described a junior primary homonym Eriococcus parvispinus and a replacement name of Nidularia parvisetus was proposed by Lindinger (1957) which is currently placed in Eriococcus.
- Structure: Female enclosed in yellowish felted sac. Body red (Chaffin, 1923).
