Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Tamsola was first used in the binomen of the type-species, but without any generic description. Under the Code, Article 13 (a), Tamsola is not nomenclaturally available from 1946. Under Artide 17 (3) this does not, however, prevent the availability of the specific name.

Poole (1989) included only 1 species in the genus.
