[=Clypeolampadidae, Kier, 1962, p. 187]
Cretaceous (Cenomanian) to Recent.
|Remarks||Included in this family are a few forms that have sunken phyllodes, which result in non-projecting 'pseudobourrelets'. These are not true bourrelets as they incorporate post-basicoronal plates. Close to Cassidulidae but immediately distinguished from that group by its inframarginal periproct. Gitolampadids are similar in phyllode structure but have a marginal, longitudinal periproct.
