accepted valid name
- Systematics: The genus Pseudoacanthococcus is distinct from all known acanthococcid genera known in Palaearctic Region, except Orontesicoccus, by the presence of spines with 1 or 2 microtubular ducts associated with their bases. However, Orontesicoccus differs from Pseudoacanthococcus by having spinose dorsal setae on margin and dorsum. (Kozár, et al., 2013) In Kozár, et al., 2013, Pseudoacanthococcus was placed in the family, Acanthococcidae Signoret, 1875, but is here kept in Eriococcidae because placement of species.outside of the palaearctic are unclear.
- Structure: Antennae 7 segmented; frontal lobe present. Multilocular pores on venter only, each with 5 loculi. Macrotubular ducts of one sizes with heavy rim at dermal orifice, scattered on venter especially on margin, ducts present in high number all over the dorsum. Legs normal, tibia shorter than tarsus. Claw with a denticle. Tarsal and claw digitules slightly capitated. All coxae with spinulae; posterior coxae also with small pores. Hind tibia with 4 setae. Cruciform pores few on thorax of venter. Ventral setae in small number, short, hair-like. Enlarged setae present on dorsum in four longiditual rows, setae with (0-4) microtubular duct at base. Marginal row of spines enlarged slightly blunted. Anal lobes
well developed; dorsal surface of each lobe with three enlarged setae, microtrichia present on anal lobe, on cauda and on derm, ventral surface of each lobe with a long apical seta and shorter subapical seta. Anal ring sclerotized, well developed with one row of anal ring pores and with 6 long setae. Cauda present. Microtubular ducts narrow, long spread all over dorsum among spines. (Kozár, et al., 2013)
