Plataspidae (emended by some later authors as "Plataspididae", in violation of ICZN Code Article 29.5) are a family of shield bugs native to the Old World. One species, Megacopta cribraria, has recently become introduced and established in the southeastern United States, where it is a pest of soybeans.
The genera include:
