Adult female (measurements based on n=50).

Unmounted material ( Fig. 1A View FIGURE 1 ). Adult female in life about 1.5–4.0 mm long, 1.0–3.0 mm wide, oval, slightly convex. Test glassy, whitish to semi-transparent, of a granulose texture. Body creamy yellow to brownish. Anal plates and sclerotization around anal plates reddish brown ( Figs 1A, B & D View FIGURE 1 ). Second-instar nymphs light yellowgreen and covered by a glassy semi-transparent test ( Fig. 1C View FIGURE 1 ).

Slide-mounted material ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 ). Body 1.40–3.83 (1.92) mm long, 0.98–2.90 (1.56) mm wide, oval.

Dorsum. Derm membranous, with areolations clearly visible over entire dorsum in older specimens. Dorsal setae absent. Dorsal microducts each oval, bilocular, about 2.0 µm wide, fairly abundant, scattered over dorsum. Simple pores each 1.4–3.4 (mostly 2.0–3.0) µm wide, fairly abundant, scattered over dorsum. Dorsal tubular ducts, dorsal tubercles and pocket-like sclerotizations absent. Preopercular pores circular, with a thick rim, each about 2.5–4.0 µm wide, extending anteriorly along midline from area anterior to anal plates to about mesothorax, some pores occasionally present on area laterad to anal plates. Anal plates together subquadrate, located at about 1/5 of body length from posterior margin, each plate 97.5–115.0 (97.5–102.5) µm long, 12.5–60.0 (50.0–52.5) µm wide, anterolateral margin 50.0–80.0 (67.5–80.0) µm long, posterolateral margin 67.5–80.0 (67.5–72.5) µm long, with about 4 bluntly spinose setae on dorsal surface: 3 apical and 1 inner marginal seta; anogenital fold with 4 long, sharply spinose fringe setae; ventral subapical setae and hypopygial setae not detected; anal plates often heavily sclerotized, so structural details difficult to observe in most specimens. Anal ring bearing 6 setae. A sclerotic area present around anal plates.

Margin. Marginal setae each spinose and conical, with a bulbous base, straight, 12–30 µm long, some setae evidently much shorter than others, arranged in a single irregular row, with 3–10 (7–9) on each side between anterior and posterior stigmatic areas. Stigmatic clefts very shallow or absent. Stigmatic spines sharply spinose, straight or slightly curved, gradually or abruptly tapering to a point, rarely bifurcate; anterior stigmatic spines totalling 1 (rarely 2) in each anterior stigmatic area, each 51.0–112.5 (77.5–85.0) µm long; posterior stigmatic spines totalling 1 or 2 (1 on holotype) in each stigmatic area, each 68.0–120.0 (100.0–110.0) µm long. Eyes well developed, circular, domed, each 20–30 (20) µm wide, located on dorsal margin, often between marginal setae.

Venter. Derm entirely membranous. Perivulvar pores each 4.0– 5.5 µm wide, mainly with 5 loculi (rarely a pore with 4, 6, 7 or 8 loculi), present in a group of 11–16 pores on each side along anal fold just posterior to vulvar area. Spiracular pores each 3.0–5.0 µm wide, mostly with 5 loculi (but occasional pores with 3 or 4 loculi), present in a narrow band about 2 or 3 pores wide, extending laterally from each spiracle to body margin; each anterior pore band with 14–27 (14–15) spiracular pores, each posterior spiracular pore band with 25–40 (17–24) spiracular pores. Ventral microducts each about 2.5–3.0 µm wide, scarce on mid venter, absent from around margins but abundant in a submarginal band. Simple pores scattered on ventral margin and submargin, absent from mid venter, each pore circular, about 2.0–3.0 µm wide, similar in shape and size to simple pores on dorsum. Ventral tubular ducts present in a submarginal band and scattered on mid venter; each duct with outer ductule 17.5–20.0 µm long, inner ductule 7.5–10.0 µm long, with terminal filament ending in a flower-shaped gland. Ventral setae slender, straight or slightly bent, present on all abdominal segments and submedially around body, each 6.3–17.0 µm long; ventral submarginal setae slender, straight or slightly bent, stouter than other ventral setae, each 10–16 µm long; long prevulvar setae absent. Spiracles well developed, with a sclerotization around each spiracle, anterior spiracular sclerotization 60.0–105.0 (60.0–75.0) µm long, 42.5–92.5 (62.5–65.0) µm wide, posterior spiracular sclerotization 65.0–112.5 (60.0–77.5) µm long, 42.5–115.0 (62.5–65.0) µm wide; quinquelocular pores present within atrium, totalling about 3–8 per spiracular sclerotization, often hard to detect. Legs well developed, each coxa (excluding coxal process) 100.0–117.5 (97.5–112.5) µm long, trochanter + femur 140.0–157.5 (137.5–150.0) µm long; tibia + tarsus 187.5–230.0 (187.5–222.0) µm long, without tibio-tarsal sclerosis; claw 15.0– 22.5 µm (20.0–22.5) long, with a minute denticle. Tarsal digitules both knobbed, one shorter than other, shorter digitule 37.5–42.5 (37.5–40.0) µm long, longer digitule 45.0–52.5 (45.0–50.0) µm long; claw digitules similar and broad, each 15.0–25.0 (20.0–25.0) µm long. Antennae each 182–250 (192.5–195.0) µm long, usually with 6, more rarely 7 segments (6 in holotype); fleshy setae generally present on last 3 antennal segments, although specimens with fleshy setae on last 2 antennal segments also present; segments II and IV each usually with a very long slender seta. With 3 or 4 pairs of interantennal setae, each seta 12.5–50.0 µm long. Mouthparts relatively large; clypeolabral shield 145.0–187.5 (180) µm long, 127.5–160.0 (150) µm wide; labium 1 segmented, 75.0–105.0 (92.5) µm long, 77.5–130.0 (127.5) µm wide, with 4 pairs of labial setae.

Diagnosis. The adult female of C. corpoica   can be diagnosed by the combination of the following features: (1) test glassy, whitish to semi-transparent, of a granulose texture; (2) dorsal derm with areolations; (3) dorsal microducts bilocular; (4) simple pores of 1 size type; (5) dorsal tubular ducts, dorsal tubercles and pocket-like sclerotizations absent; (6) preopercular pores thick rimmed, present along midline from area anterior to anal plates anteriorly to about mesothorax; (7) anal plates together subquadrate, with about 4 bluntly spinose setae on dorsal surface, and with 4 pairs of long sharply spinose fringe setae; without ventral subapical and hypopygial setae; (8) anal ring bearing 6 setae; (9) marginal setae each spinose and conical, with a bulbous base, of 2 length types; (10) each stigmatic area with 1 or 2 stigmatic spines; (11) ventral microducts scarce on mid venter, absent from around margins but abundant in a submarginal band; (12) simple pores scattered on ventral margin and submargin, absent from mid venter; (13) long prevulvar setae absent; and (14) antennae 6 or 7 segmented.

Etymology. The species is named after the Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria [Colombian Corporation for Agricultural Research] (Corpoica). The species epithet is a noun in apposition.

Notes. Cryptinglisia corpoica   sp. nov. was collected on rosemary in the departments of Antioquia, Boyaca and Cundinamarca. Sooty mold symptoms were found associated with C. corpoica   ( Fig. 1E View FIGURE 1 ).
