Genus Cryptinglisia Cockerell  

Cryptinglisia Cockerell, 1900: 173   .

Type species: Cryptinglisia lounsburyi Cockerell, 1900: 173   . By monotypy.

Generic diagnosis. Members of the genus Cryptinglisia   can be diagnosed as follows: (1) insects in life covered by a semi-transparent, glassy and brittle test; (2) derm entirely membranous apart from a heavily sclerotized crescent around anal plates; (3) dorsal setae entirely absent; (4) anal plates heavily sclerotized, with thick spinose setae (usually less than 4 setae in each plate); (5) preopercular pores present in a linear group anterior to anal plates; (6) marginal setae sharply spinose or conical, with a broad base and well-developed basal socket; (7) legs usually well developed, with distinguishable coxa, trochanter, femur, tibia and tarsi, without tibio-tarsal sclerosis (but legs reduced in C. elytropappi   and C. millari   ); (8) spiracles each surrounded by a sclerotization; (9) spiracular pores mostly with 5 loculi; (10) a single stigmatic spine (some specimens of C. corpoica   sp. nov. with 2 stigmatic setae) per stigmatic cleft; (11) perivulvar pores usually mostly with 5 loculi (but perivulvar pores not known in C. elytropappi   and C. millari   ); and (12) ventral tubular ducts of 1 type, present in a broad submarginal band, and medially.

Remarks. The two new species herein described fit well in the subfamily Cardiococcinae in Hodgson`s (1994) book on the identification of coccid genera. However, they do not fit well in the genus Cryptinglisia   in Hodgson`s (1994) key because the two new species from Colombia have well-developed eyes, a feature that puts them close to Dicyphococcus Borchsenius   and Cardiococcus Cockerell. However   , the latter two genera both have a group of stigmatic setae in each stigmatic cleft. Other than the presence of eyes, the two new species fit well in Cryptinglisia   .
