- General Remarks: Description and characters by Takagi (2003).
- Systematics: Takagi (2003) assigned the genus to Aspidiotinae, while indicating its relation to Hemiberlesia and Abgrallaspis. The genus is especially characterized by the occurrence of lanceolate marginal setae on the dorsal and ventral surfaces of abd VII. Several other aspidiotine genera, namely Octaspidiotus MacGillivray, Acanthaspidiotus Borchsenius and Williams, and
Oceanaspidiotus Takagi, are also provided with lanceolate or thickened marginal setae on the pygidium, but these genera are more closely similar to Aspidiotus Bouche than to Banahaoa, especially in having well-developed pectinae on abd V-IX.
