Type species Type species given as Staurocephalus rubrovittatus Grube 1855 [= Dorvillea rubrovittata] in Hartman catalogue, also in Jumars, 1974, Fauchald, 1977, and elsewhere, but this is incorrect. The type remains Dorvillea lobata Parfitt, 1866, but it is a subjective synonym of D. rubrovittata. [details]

Etymology Author: "I have named this genus as a slight tribute of regard to Mr. H. D'Orville, who kindly placed Colonel Montagu's MSS and drawings in my hands. The beautiful drawings were made by Mr. D'Orville's mother, many of which were transferred into the Linnean Society's 'Transactions,' to illustrate Colonel Montagu's papers on the animals of South Devon." This seems to be a reference to the artist Elizabeth Dorville, who was George Montagu's partner. [details]
