- HardyGu2007b: pp.87 ( Adult (F) ) [Key to adult females of Phacelococcus species]
- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female with: enlarged setae absent; hair-like setae scattered over dorsal surface; dorsal multilocular pores absent; cruciform pores absent; antennae 6-segmented; macrotubular ducts present; microtubular ducts medium in length, with 1 or 2 sclerotized areas (Gullan & Strong, 1997). Gullan & Strong (1997) state that "the paratypes from Victoria with the designation #596 are listed in W.W. Froggatt's accession notebook with the following data: 'Warburtonia frenchi on Eucalyptus regnans, C. French 8/16/15 from Warburton, Vic.'" Green (1918) and Lindinger (1937) also gave this species the name Warburtonia frenchi but never formally described it; therefore, it is a nomen nudum.
- Biology: Gullan & Strong (1997) suppose that this species is fed upon by the yellow-bellied glider (Petaurus australis Shaw). They also state that the dry bark from which these specimens were extracted contains the remnants of a cream to pale brown waxy secretion forming individual cells where females were positioned, as well as some white powdery wax.
- General Remarks: Gullan & Strong (1997) describe and illustrate the adult female of this species.
