Striglina was placed on the Official List of Generic Names in Zoology with Name Number 2041 by the I.C.Z.N. in 1977, Bull. zool. Nom. 33 (Opinion 1075): 176, with an endorsement that it is to be given precedence over the generic name Daristane Walker, 1859, by any zoologist who believes that both names represent the same taxon.
