Mamet, 1959 (Halimococcidae
Type species: Madhalimococcus hyphaeneae Mamet
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: Madhalimococcus is distinguishable by the occurrence of 10-12 groups of spines in a mesal position on the derm of the egg, by the 1st stage which is characterized by a marginal row of blunt spines and the occurrence of numerous smaller spines on its dorsal surface. The second stage female is related to Halimococcus by the constitution of the spiracular pore pattern and to Thysanococcus by the occurrence of tubular ducts in a rather regular row in the submarginal area of the venter. In the adult, Madhalimococcus may easily be confused with Halimococcus (Mamet, 1959a).
- Structure: Adult female pupillarial. Body subcircular to broadly oval, with posterior end projecting a little. Derm membranous except for the dorsal surface of the pygidium and for the anterior vulvar lips. Pygidium well-developed and not showing any trace of segmentation (Mamet, 1959a).
- General Remarks: Detailed description by Mamet (1959a).
