  Comment: LSID associated with the scientific name Orcula (Phyllophorus) dubia Bedford, 1899 acquired on 15 October, 2015  
    Michonneau and Paulay (2014) consider Orcula (Phyllophorus) dubia Bedford, 1899 to be species inquirenda, as the species is known only from its type, has not been studied since the original description, and generic assignment is not possible without additional study
