Another species, Cyphaspis hamidi Chatterton et al., 2006, from stratigraphically lower levels (ZGEE1 and ZGEE2) at the nearby Zguilma locality, is similar to C. foumzguidensis yet distinctly different in having a more strongly inflated median glabellar lobe; longer, more inflated L1; larger eyes; narrower (tr.) librigenal field lateral of the eye, with fewer granules.
