- General Remarks: Definition and characters by Brimblecombe (1957).
- Systematics: The genus Mimeraspis resembles Neomorgania MacGillivray and Pseudotargionia Cockerell in having a thoracic constriction, prominent median lobes, a small anal opening close to the lobes, perispiracular disc pores associated with the anterior spiracles and dorsal reticulated chitinization on the pygidium. It differs from Neomorgania in the shape of ducts, shape of duct orifices. The contiguous median lobes distinguish Mimeraspis from Pseudotargionia (Brimblecombe, 1957).
