- Systematics: Subfamily: Ceroplastinae.
Although the genus Waxiella is separated from Ceroplastes on the state of only a single character, two types of spinose setae in each stigmatic cleft (quite sharply-pointed spinose setae actually in the cleft and more rounded conical spinose setae extending up onto the dorsum, both clearly different from marginal setae), it is
considered that this is a significant difference. This is the only known soft scale genus in which some stigmatic setae are present on the venter. (Hodgson & Peronti, 2012)
