MacGillivray 1921 (Diaspididae
Type species: Cryptodiaspis limuloides Lindinger
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: Hall (1946a) states that "this genus was erected by MacGillivray for a single species Cryptodiaspis limuloides Lindinger, from the Cameroon. In the key to genera given by that author the only character separating it from the genus Cryptodiaspis Lindinger is the absence of perivulvar pores. This in itself would be insufficient grounds for the separation but unfortunately neither limuloides nor the other two species of Cryptodiaspis have been seen and no opinion can, therefore, be expressed."
