by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Definition and characters given by Laing (1925a), Ferris (1937a) and by Hall (1946a).
- Systematics: The affinities of this genus are obscure. Laing (1925a) assigned it to the Aspidiotini as "its affinities are entirely with such genera as Selenaspidus and Pseudaonidia. Ferris (1937a) interpreted that it belonged to the Diaspidinae rather than to the Aspidiotinae. Pending future study of the type species, Operculaspis is retained in the Aspidiotinae, as suggested by Hall (1946a) and Borchsenius (1966).
