The taxon was erected by Vadet (2004) and differentiated from Nudicidaris by its more subconjugate pore-pairs. Guittonicidaris has almost identical test morphology, although its tubercle crenulation is less well developed. It is quite possible that both Remycidaris and Guittonicidaris are based on different-sized individuals of the same species.
