Hemming (1967) stated:-

This genus was established in a generic key with a brief diagnosis but with no cited included species. It was not until the following year (loc. cit. 2 (20) : 185-186) that Moore provided a detailed description and designated a type-species.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
