- General Remarks: Detailed description by Munting (1970).
- Systematics: Magnospinus belongs to the tribe Chionaspidini. It is distinct in that no other genus has gland spines which are so extravagantly developed (Munting, 1970).
- Structure: Median lobes basally yoked, without gland spines, macroducts or marginal pygidial notch between them, and without any basal scleroses projecting into pygidium; 2nd lobes not clearly differentiated and also without any basal scleroses projecting into pygidium. Dorsal ducts small, not conspicuously double-barred. Gland spines very well developed, enormous on some segments. Anal opening near base of pygidium. Perivulvar pores present (Munting, 1970).
