Pseudomegalaspis is not recorded from Morocco, however, Fortey & Owens 1987 reclassified Plesiomegalaspis as a junior subjective synonym of Asaphellus Callaway 1877.  Fortey 1975 reclassified Lannacus as a j.s.s. of Megalaspides, stating that the slight differences are within the range of variation and did not warrant a subgeneric rank for Lannacus.
