by subsequent designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed discussion and description in Normark, et al., 2014.
- Systematics: A user of Ferris"s (1942) key to the North American genera might key out a specimen of Davidsonaspis to Chrysomphalus if the pore furrow margins of the second space are mistaken for true paraphyses, or nearest to Palinaspis if the pore furrow margins of the first space are seen as Þnger-like and not apically knobbed, or nearest to Clavaspis if the pore furrow margin of the Þrst space is seen as terminating in a heavily sclerotized knob. In Miller and Davidson's (2005) key to U.S. pest species, a specimen of Davidsonaspis keys out as C. perniciosa. (Normark, et al., 2014).
- Structure: Davidsonaspis has long, straight, well-marked, paraphysis-like sclerotized pore furrow margins in the Þrst and second spaces. (Normark, et al., 2014)
