Hemming (1967) stated:-

As already noted, this name appeared in the text misspelled as Gonelilia. After the pages in question had been printed but before they were published in Part 4 of volume 1 of Sieboldia, the fact that this name had been misspelled in this way was detected by the authors who caused an Errata slip correcting the spelling to Gorerilia to be inserted facing page 422. This correction complies with all the requirements of the Code relating to the emendation of names and accordingly the spelling Gonerilia is the correct spelling of this name.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
