The new species Eremiaspis graminis, which is the second in the genus, is descriptionbed from South West Africa. The new genus Phaspis is established for the new species P. lobulata, which is descriptionbed from the Transvaal. The cotypes of Aonidia glandulosa Newstead, the type-species of Pseudotargionia Lindinger, were studied and the lectotype has been selected. The identification of P. glandulosa from southern Africa is confirmed, and notes are presented on the variation in some features of this species.
