by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed description by McKenzie (1945).
- Systematics: Parlaspis appears to be related to Parlatoria, but differs in body shape, and in the extraordinary development of the pygidial plates, which do not possess microducts (McKenzie, 1945).
- Structure: With short "two-barred" macroducts, those situated along pygidial margins each with the orifices surrounded by a conspicuous sclerotized ring, each duct with the axis of the orifice set approximately at right angles to the axis of the pygidium, macroducts on pygidium dorsum few in number confined mainly to the margin itself; microducts present either dorsally or ventrally, appearing in segmental arrangement (McKenzie, 1945).
