McKenzie 1963 (Diaspididae
Type species: Helaspis mexicana McKenzie
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Definition and characters by McKenzie (1963).
- Systematics: Helaspis appears to suggest Aspidiotus Bouche more strongly than any other aspidiotine genera. The short length of dorsal pygidial macroducts resembles certain Aspidiotus species, while the 'peg-like' plates, with little or no fimbriation, and the bilobed-shape of the third pygidial lobes, show wide divergence from Aspidiotus (McKenzie, 1963).
