- Systematics: This genus is related to the Australian genera Hybridaspis and Hemiaspidis in having the adult enclosed in the second exuviae but differs from these in that the gland spines on the pygidial margin are in continuous series and none are broad with a divided apex (Brimblecombe, 1959b).
- Structure: Adult female enclosed in the enlarged and heavily sclerotized exuviae of the second stage nymph, subcircular, membranous. Pygidium with median pair of large contiguous lobes. Basal scleroses and paraphyses absent. Gland spines in a continuous row on pygidial and prepygidial segments. Dorsal ducts few and indistinct (Brimblecombe, 1959b).
