- General Remarks: Detailed analysis in Takagi & Kondo, 1997.
- Systematics: In the adult female this genus is very similar to some 'rugaspidiotines,' expecially Rugaspidiotinus and Smilacicola. It is distinguishable from the latter two in the position of the anus: in Mangaspis the anus is situated more anteriorly and appears to occur on the 5th abdominal segment. It is also characterized in the antennae, which are situated close to the mouth-parts, beset with several microducts and provided with a single seta. Furthermore, the ducts are all small in Mangaspis. In the first insta, Mangaspis is very different.
