 Comments
       
  Comment: Listed as a "Spec. Dub." by Marcus (1936), a valid species by Mathews (1938), and as a "Species Incertae sedis" by Higgins (1959). No more recent reference was found, and the current status and placement of this name remains uncertain. Further research is needed to resolve this
