by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed description by Munting (1970).
- Systematics: This genus bears no resemblance to those placed by Borchsenius (1966) in the tribe Fioriniini. The adult female, however, resembles certain members of the Leucaspidini but differs from them in the presence of setaceous gland spines and in that the openings of the submarginal macroducts are more or less perpendicular to the pygidial margin. Chimania also resembles the genus Tenuiaspis, but differs from it in being a pupillarial genus (Munting, 1970).
- Structure: Adult female elongate. Median lobes small, not basally yoked, close together. Gland tubercles absent, pygidial gland spines very long and conspicuous. Dorsal pygidial ducts large, few in number, confined to submarginal area and with an extremely long microduct on their inner ends. Anal opening near center of pygidium, vulva near apial one third. Perivulvar pores present. Second instar with submarginal pygidial ducts with their orifices more or less perpendicular to the margin (Munting, 1970).
