Possibly Mealybug

Dear ecology,
This may be the first time we have received an identification request from an entire scientific discipline as opposed to a request from an individual.  This appears to us like it might be a Hemipteran because of its similarity to the Giant Snowball Mealybug from Australia.  Based on Project Noah, Giant Scale Insects from the genus
Monophlebulus are found in the Philippines.  Your image is not distinct enough to be certain.
