Ferris 1941 (Diaspididae
Type species: Mancaspis lunata Ferris
by original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: The species of Mancaspis resemble members of the European genus Discodiaspis, but in this the pygidial ducts are all small, the larger marginal dorsal series being absent. There is also a certain degree of resemblance to some of the species previously referred by the author to the genus Pseudodiaspis, but in all these the gland spines are well developed on the pygidial margin (Ferris, 1941d).
