accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed description and illustration by Mamet (1954).
- Systematics: Paraleucaspis differs from Pseudoleucaspis Mamet by the presence in the second stage of developed ducts on the margin of the pygidium and of bilobed second lobes. Paraleucaspis is related to Emmereziaspis Mamet, by the constitution of the pygidial margin of the second stage, but differs from this genus by the shape of the adult female (which is reniform in Emmereziaspis), by the absence of gland spines in the adult female and by the shape of the second stage (which is circular in Emmereziaspis) (Mamet, 1954).
- Structure: Adult female elongate, more or less membranous; body destitute of all but minute ducts. Pygidium with 2 pairs of lobes which barely exceed the margin of the pygidium; median lobes non-zygotic, 2nd lobes not bilobed. Perivulvar pores absent. Gland spines absent. Body spines inserted in fairly developed sockets (Mamet, 1954).
