- General Remarks: Detailed descriptions by Hall (1946a) and Borchsenius & Williams (1963).
- Systematics: Rolaspis differs from Tecaspis in the arrangement of the dorsal pores on segment 6, in having some pores in the median region of segments 1-3 and in having a well-developed pair of 2nd lobes. It differs from Voraspis in the nature of the median lobes and the arrangement of dorsal pores (Hall, 1946a).
- Structure: Body elongate, fusiform, often slightly sclerotized at maturity except intersegmentally. Median lobes more or less prominent, usually longer than broad with typically a V-shaped notch between and with their bases clearly yoked together. A pair of setae, but without gland spines or marginal pores, between lobes. 2nd lobes duplex, well developed, the lobules rounded apically (Hall, 1946a).
