 Comments
       
  Comment: Although Turgeon et al. (1998) state that Plicifusus Dall, 1902 has been synonymized (under Colus), it is still apparently in use as a valid genus (e.g., Higo et al., 1999). The status and placement are in need of verification, and the generic placement of numerous species are affected by this difference
