Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

Doubleday cited only the above species (on plate 50) when he established this genus in 1848, thus making that species the type-species by monotypy ; Westwood in the text published two years later cited two additional species as belonging to this genus.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
