Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

In the year following the establishment of this nominal genus, Toxopeus republished the name Monodontides (1928, loc. cit. 71 : 181, 182) as the name for a new genus in exactly the same sense as that which he had adopted in 1927.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
