Genus Laubierinia Richer de Forges & Ng, 2009  

Laubierinia Richer de Forges & Ng, 2009a: 14   [type species: Rochinia carinata Griffin & Tranter, 1986   , original designation by Richer de Forges & Ng (2009a)].

Remarks. Laubierinia   currently includes two species, L. carinata (Griffin & Tranter, 1986)   (type species), and L. nodosa ( Rathbun, 1916)   . Laubierinia   is morphologically close to the IWP Rochinia   but differs by a more rounded carapace (versus pyriform carapace in Rochinia   ), short and flattened pseudorostral spines (versus long, slender and more cylindrical pseudorostral spines in Rochinia   ), and the presence of large distinct granules on the hepatic and branchial regions (versus with hepatic and branchial spines in Rochinia   ) (see Richer de Forges & Ng 2009a).
