- Systematics: Pseudococcus bahiensis is similar to P. jackbeardsleyi in that it has discoidal pores on a sclerosed border around the eye and translucent pores on the femur and tibia, a similar distribution of tubular ducts with oral border on the dorsum and of ducts with collars on the venter, but it differs from that species because P. bahiensis. 1) lacks dorsal ducts with oral rims on the cephalic area (frontals are present in P. jackbeardsleyi); 2) has 5-8 pores on the femur and 39-45 on the tibia (21-69 in the femur and 30-86 in the tibia in P. jackbeardsleyi); and 3) presents only the pair of anal cerarii on a slightly sclerotized surface (two last pairs of cerarii on slightly sclerotized surface in P. jackbeardsleyi). (Granara de Willink & González, 2018)
- Structure: Translucent pores on the femur and tibia, eyes with 6-8 discoidal pores, sclerotized tubular ducts with oral dorsal collars: on thorax 7-8, submarginal and lateral between C4 and C5; on abdomen approximately 20 submarginal, lateral, submedial and medial, absent on dorsal and ventral cephalic area; 6 on the venter between C5 and C11.
