Hemming (1967) stated:-

The name Naevolus was introduced as a replacement for Cydrus Godman, which is invalid under the Law of Homonymy.

As has been explained in the note on Cydrus Godman, the type-species of this genus is currently identified subjectively with the older-established nominal species Proteides orius Mabille, 1883 (Bull. C. R. Soc. ent. Belg. 27 : lix).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
