- Systematics: Eriococcus szentivanyi differs from other species presently included in the genus Eriococcus Targoni Tozzetti by the capitate setae on the labium, instead of the usual flagellate setae. Apparently, similar setae are found on the labium in the family Monophlebidae (Koteja, 1974) and in the mealybug genus Dicranococcus Williams. E. szentivanyi is similar to Eriococcus araucariae Maskell in possessing a marginal series of stout spine-like setae but these are noticeably longer than the other dorsal setae. Furthermore, (i) the marginal spinnose setae are absent from the thorax of E. szentivanyi whereas they are present on E. araucariae; (ii) there is only one pair of setae present on the basal segment of the labium of E. szentivanyi but there are two pairs on E. araucariae; (iii) E. szentivanyi possesses a causa (apparently absent on E. araucariae) and (iv) E. szentivanyi lacks trilocular pores (present on E. araucariae).

- Structure: Body of slide mounted female, elongate oval, about 1.43 mm long and 0.78 m wide. Antnnae 6 segmented, segment III longest, but with a partial division; each segment with few setae, segment II with snsory por, segment III with almost parallel sides; apical segment with 4 sensory falcate setae; segments IV and V each with a single falcate seta. Frontal lobes present next to basal antennal segments. Eyes present, near margin. Venter: Labium 3 segmented, basal segment with 1 pair of robust seta; sta on distal segment long and capitate. Stylet loop very short, about as long as labium. Legs well developed, long. Tarsal digitules knobbed; claw digitules, slightly knobbed. Coxae without spinulae. Hindcoxae and femora each with large irregularly-shaped translucent pores. Each trochanter with 2 sensory pores on each side. Slaws each without a denticle. Leg segments with few setae, all flagellate; tarsi each with a sensory pore at proximal end. Spiracles with a large group of 5-10 locular pores near opening. Multilocular disc pores of 2 sizes; larger with 7-10 loculi, present in small numbers over most of surface. Abdominal setae flagellate, each short, longest about as long as width of segment. Minute spine-like setae fairly numerous in a submarginal band and on frons. Microtubular ducts absent. Macrotubular ducts of 2 sizes, ducts found more medially slightly narrower; each duct with inner ductule as long as outer ductule and with inner gland flower-shaped. Venter of each anal lobe with 1 subapical seta, one suranal seta near inner margin and one more seta near outer margin. Dorsum: Marginal setae robust, spine-like, weakly truncate, present singly on margin of each abdominal segment; also with about 16 robust, bluntly-tipped spine-like setae on head margin, each subequal to those posteriorly, spine-like marginal setae absent along thoracic margins. Other dorsal setae minute, blunt and spine-like with a rather broad basal socket; mainly present across middle of segments. Macrotubular ducts present, similar to those on venter, fairly evenly distributed throughout dorsum. Microtubular ducts present, each with an oval orifice surrounded by small flat sclerotized area with two wing-like extensions, sparsely scattered among dorsal setae. Loculate pores absent. Anal ring sclerotized with a sparse row of pores plus 6 flagellate anal ring setae. Anal lobes well developed, heavily sclerotized and each dentate along inner margin, each with 2 robust truncate setae and with a very short stout seta on outer margin near base. Apical setae robust and flagellate. Cauda present, sclerotized. (Kozár, et al., 2009)
