- General Remarks: Definition and characters by Balachowsky (1958b).
- Systematics: Recent workers (Balachowsky, 1958b; Borchsenius, 1966; Morrison & Morrison, 1966) have accepted this genus as valid. It differs from Hemiberlesia Cockerell by the reduced size of the scale cover, and the characteristic sclerotization of the margin of the prosoma. It has affinity to Schizaspis Cockerell & Robinson, from which it differs mainly by the absence of constrictions on the prosoma.
