- General Remarks: Takagi & Kawai (1973) revise the description of Protancepaspis and its relation to Ancepaspis.
- Systematics: Protancepaspis is closely related to Ancepaspis Ferris. The adult female may be distinguished by the developed marginal tubular and perivulvar ducts of the pygidium, the presence of discoidal pores before the anterior spiracles and tubular ducts behind the posterior spiracles and also by the location of the anal aperture, which is situated at the base of the pygidium anterior to the vaginal opening (Borchsenius & Bustshik, 1959).
- Structure: Adult female broadly pear-shaped with an elongated and acute abdomen, up to 1.2 mm long. Outer body covering weakly sclerotized except for a small portion of the dorsal pygidial surface. All body segments fused, no clear division between pygidium and the remaining abdominal segments (Borchsenius & Bustshik, 1959).
