- Systematics: The species of this genus have characters related to Trionymus but have long, thick dorsal setae. In the long dorsal thick setae it resembles Chaetotrionymus, but differs in the peculiar structure of legs. In Villosicoccus the entire femora are much wider than the tibia; the entire legs have the appearance of a claw.
- General Remarks: Good definition and characters of the adult female given by Williams (1985).
