by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Definition and characters by Brimblecombe (1954) and by Borchsenius & Williams (1963).
- Systematics: The type species of this genus possesses a constriction between the prothorax and mesothorax, thus resembling the Pseudaonidia group of genera, but differs in having also constrictions on all prepygidial segments. The genus distinctly belongs to the group of genera allied to Aspidiotus Bouche, in having three pairs of well developed lobes, the structure of the plates and the absence of reticulated area on the pygidium (Borchsenius & Williams, 1963).
