Taxonomy This species and allied are usually held in Venerupis but this is not unequivocally supported; Huber (2010) is here followed in using Polititapes as valid genus, awaiting a much needed phylogenetic revision of the group. Polititapes was published February, 1900 and therefore has priority over Callistotapes Sacco, 1900 (published April 29, 1900) in case they are considered synonyms. [details]
