Type species: Myrtaspis marginalis Takagi
by original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: This genus is erected for species which apparently have a close relation to Aulacaspis, but cannot be referred to that genus in having lateral macroducts and gland spines on the body part anterior to the 2nd abdominal segment. Myrtaspis differs from Chionaspis in the median lobes being only weakly zygotic and only a little differentiated in shape and size from the lobules of the well-developed 2nd and 3rd lobes. Myrtaspis is also similar to Narayanaspis, in which the pygidial lobes are all similar in shape and size and the median lobes are definitely non-zygotic and parallel (Takagi, 1999).
