accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed description by Munting (1969).
- Systematics: Namaquea resembles Anotaspis Ferris in the complete absence of any pygidial processes, but the presence of well developed, widely separated lobes and numerous segmentally arranged pygidial macroducts in the 2nd instar separate the two genera (Munting, 1969).
- Structure: Adult female completely enclosed by 2nd instar exuviae, body oval or broadly fusiform. Lobes, pygidial gland spines and gland tubercles completely lacking. Dorsal pygidial macroducts few in number. Perivulvar pores absent in type species. Anal opening at basal third of pygidium (Munting, 1969).
