Type species: Relhaniaspis acuminata Munting
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: Relhaniaspis bears some resemblance to Phaulomytilus but differs in having the lobes bilobulate, and in that the marginopygidial ducts are not differentiated in size from those on the dorsum. The numerous marginal ducts on segment VI are reminiscent of the genus Moraspis but it differs from it in the distribution of other pygidial ducts and in that the median lobes are not yoked (Munting, 1970).
- Structure: Median lobes small, well separated, bilobulate, not yoked by an internal sclerotic band; 2nd lobes also bilobulate, similar in shape to median lobes; 3rd lobes spinose. Gland tubercles well developed but pygidial gland spines poorly developed; absent between median lobes. Dorsopygidial ducts not differentiated in size from those on the margin; arranged segmentally. Submarginal ducts well represented on segments VI to VIII. One or two marginal ducts present between median lobes. Anal opening situated at basal third of pygidium (Munting, 1970).
