by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed description and illustration by Takagi (1987).
- Systematics: Neparla is apparently close to Parlatoria, but disagrees with the latter mainly in the following characters: In the adult female pygidial macroducts occur on the ventral surface as well, the perivulvar disk pores are arranged in an arch (which may be incomplete medially), the plates are rudimentary laterally to the 3rd lobes. In the 2nd instar female, the exuviation is of the bivalve type (Takagi, 1987).
