Hemming (1967) stated:-

Moore began the description of the genus Laringa on the last page of Part 49 and completed it on the first page (: 25) of Part 50 ; it was on the second of these pages that the above species was designated as the type-species. Luckily, these two Parts were published in the same year (1901).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
