Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

This generic name was introduced as a replacement for the name Phoedinus Godman & Salvin, [1894], which is invalid under the Law of Homonymy. Unfortunately, the substitute name Anaperus Mabille & Boullet was itself found to be invalid under the Law of Homonymy. In its turn it was replaced in 1934 by the name Caicella Hemming.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
