- Systematics: The first-instar nymph has non-sclerotised anal lobes, and differs from the nymphs of Exallococcus in having 1) only spinose setae on dorsum; 2) no median plate; and 3) ventral loculate pores present in a submarginal band on abdomen. It differs from those of Icelandococcus in having 1) short, stout dorsal spinose setae; 2) only 1 type of dorsal seta; 3) all ventral loculate pores mainly quinquelocular; and 4) ventral loculate pores on abdomen submarginal. It differs from the first-instar nymphs of Pseudotectococcus in having 1) antennae 6 segmented; 2) dorsal setae more abundant on abdomen than on thorax; 3) ventral setae in three pairs of longitudinal lines on abdomen; and 4) loculate pores present submarginally on abdomen. (Hodgson & Miller, 2010) The adult female of Ov. peruvianus is most similar to the adult female of Ov. parvispinus in having: proximal setae on the femur; slightly protruding anal lobes; numerous dorsal and ventral multilocular pores; and cruciform pores on both surfaces. They differ as follows (character states in brackets are those of Ov. peruvianus): cruciform pores absent or uncommon in ventromedial areas between legs <10, often restricted to marginal areas (cruciform pores common between legs >10, present oversurface); dorsal enlarged setae uncommon or absent, when present, found on body margin (dorsal enlarged setae abundant over entire surface). (Miller & Stocks, 2022)
- Structure: Adult female body has an intense purple color, oval to rounded and convex in the state of an oviplene female, 1.8 to 2.4 mm long and covered by a fine wax.
