One of the species, Diplocystis oxycani Dumbleton, has been previously described, but the other two are undescribed. Since the undescribed species form haemocoelic cysts in insects and because their vegetative stages are unknown, they have temporarily been designated Pseudomonocystis, and named P. spinosus n. sp. and P. hexaporcatus n. sp.
