 Geographic Information

  Comment: Martin Angel (personal communication, 2004): This name was first used by Granata and Caporiacco, 1949. The name was considered nomen nudum, because they failed to nominate a type species or give a proper generic description. Therefore, the authority should be Kock, 1992
