type designation unknown
misspelling of genus name
- Systematics: Scytalaspis resembles Andaspis in some respects, but can be separated from species of that genus by the position of the anal ring (Ferris, 1955b).
- Structure: Diaspididae with two-barred ducts and referable to the Diaspidinae and the Lepidosaphes series. Body elongate, pygidium with the median lobes alone present, these prominent and close together, but not yoked at their bases, each with a prominent, somewhat clavate paraphysis arising from each basal angle (Ferris 1955b).
