- Systematics: GenBank accession number: MK433556. Pseudococcus annonae most closely resembles P. maritimus (Ehrhorn) in having: (i) minute discoidal pores associated with the eye not set in a sclerotized rim, (ii) translucent pores on tibia and femur of hind leg, (iii) oral rim ducts on dorsal submargin between cerarii 15 and 16 and (iv) longest anal-lobe setae longer than 136 μm long. However, the new species differs from P. maritimus in having (character states on P. maritimus in brackets): (i) less than 20 (16) oral-rim tubular ducts on dorsal abdomen (26) and (ii) only a few (7–10) translucent pores present on posterior end of hind tibia and femur (23–115, scattered).

- Structure: Pseudococcus annonae Pacheco da Silva & Kaydan sp. n. is characterized by the following combination of features: (i) 2 or 3 simple (discoidal) pores associated with each eye on membranous cuticle; (ii) a few (7–10) translucent pores present on posterior end of hind tibia and femur; (iii) dorsum with 28 oral rim tubular ducts, each with 0–3 flagellate setae, each 12–15 μm long, and 1–3 minute discoidal pores; and (iv) 2 sizes of oral collar tubular ducts on venter, longer ones in segmental rows on mid-abdominal segments and scattered on head and thorax; and shorter ones present on margins of abdominal segments, head and thorax.
