by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: Salaspis is closest to Ledaspis Hall. It differs in not having the median lobes definitely yoked together but in having a conspicuous marginal pore between them and several oval vacuoles medioventrally on the pygidium (Hall, 1946a).
- Structure: Body fusiform, much narrowed anteriorly, moderately sclerotized with a reticulated pattern. Anterior spiracles sunk in a definite shallow pit. Pygidium broadly rounded with 2 pairs of lobes, median lobes squat, broader than long, well separated by a shallow notch, but not yoked together basally, with one or two conspicuous marginal pores between them and a pair of minute setae but no gland spines. 2nd lobes present, duplex, but outer lobule very small and inconspicuous (Hall, 1946a).
