Howell 1995 (Diaspididae
Type species: Primaspis tippinsi Howell
by original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: Primaspis is considered to be similar to Rugaspidiotus MacGillvray and Rugaspidiotinus Balachowsky by Howell (1995) and is placed in the "Diaspidini." However, he further indicates that the genus belongs in the Odonaspidinae; and explains that this agrees with the concepts of Balachowsky (1953g) and Takagi (1969a). Later he indicates that crawler characters of 6-segmented antennae, no row of ventral submedian abdominal setae, and no elongate seta present on the tarsi, the genus is clearly part of the Diaspidinae.
