Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Hooper (2002) assigned this genus to the synonymy of Halicnemia, mostly because it consists of a single species considered a deviating member of the genus Halcinemia s.l.. However, since its properties appear rather far removed from the those of the type of Halicnemia it seems prudent to keep the genus as distinct.  [details]
