MacGillivray 1921 (Diaspididae
Type species: Chionaspis malloti Rutherford
by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- General Remarks: Detailed redescription by Takagi et al. (1989).
- Systematics: Rutherfordia appears to be closely related to Pseudaulacaspis. A number of species which may or may not fall into Pseudaulacaspis have one or two of the characters of Rutherfordia, but none of them fulfill the full requirements. Rutherfordia is adopted only provisionally (Takagi et al., 1989).
- Structure: Adult female body fusiform to broadly turbinate. L1 prominent, zygotic basally, tightly appressed or almost fused together throughout, or separated from each other except basally and with a pair of well-developed setae between. Lateral lobes rudimentary if present (Takagi et al., 1989).
