accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Definition and characters by Borchsenius & Williams (1963) and by Takagi (2007).
- Systematics: This genus is close to the genera Aspidiotus Bouche and Metaspidiotus Takagi (1957) but differs from both in possessing slender ducts, large spine-like marginal setae and poorly developed second and third lobes (Borchsenius & Williams, 1963). In possessing a small anal opening situated towards the apex of the pygidium the genus Acanthaspidiotus resembles Monaonidiella MacGillivray ((Borchsenius & Williams, 1963).
