 Comments
       
  Comment: This taxon, Rhynchelmis saxosa, is currently placed within the subgenus Rhynchelmoides; however, since several other taxa in this genus and in other genera in this family have not yet been asigned to subgenera, I have not included subgeneric classifications in this ITIS list
