The members of the genus Lecaniodiaspis Targioni-Tozetti are generally considered to be a very homogeneous group of insects belonging to the family Asterolecaniidae (Balachowsky, 1948; Ferris, 1955). Borchsenius (1959) separated Lecaniodiaspis and six allied genera from the Asterolecaniidae and erected a new family, the Lecaniodiaspididae, to contain these genera. He regarded this family as being more closely related to the Coccidae than the Asterolecaniidae (Borchsenius, 1959, 1961).
