accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Definition and characters by Ferris (1952; 1955a).
- Systematics: Ferris (1952; 1955a) stated that this genus is apparently referable to the family Asterolecaniidae. The adult female of the type species is concealed beneath a roughly circular, flat, more or less vitreous scale, bearing dorsally a number of quite stout, curling filaments of wax. This is a most peculiar genus, the adult female of which contains almost no clue to its relationships. The 8-shaped pores of the first stage larva, seem to indicate a relationship with the Asterolecaniidae.
