- General Remarks: Detailed description by Hall (1923).
- Systematics: Osiraspis differs from Fiorinia in the non-carinate character of the male scale and in the complete absence of any secretionary covering on the female scale. The remarkable belted structure of the abdomen of the adult female is a distinctive character of the genus (Hall, 1923).
- Structure: Female scale with the nymphal exuviae enlarged, heavily chitinized, without secretionary covering and completely enclosing the adult female. Pygidium of adult female densely chitinized without lobes or circumgenital pores. Abdominal segments with sharply defined, transverse, densely chitinized bands giving the body a characteristic belted appearance (Hall, 1923).
