- Biology: Occurring on the upper surface of the leaves of its host plant.
- General Remarks: Good description and illustration of the adult female given by Cockerell (1893n). Williams & Granara de Willink (1992) concluded that no original material seems to exist. It is doubtful from the original description that Cockerell would have mistaken it for any of the more common mealybugs, therefore it must be regarded as an unrecognizable species.
