Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Fauchald (1977 pink book:17) placed the genus as incertae sedis. Parapar et al (2015:333) when they transfered Falklandiella to Orbiniella stated "Buzhinskaja (1993) also suggests that Falklandiella annulata should be transferred to Orbiniella, according to the original description and drawings by Hartman (1967). Blake (2000) considers it as valid although Fauchald (1977) places this genus as incertidae [sic] sedis but still recognising that resembles the orbiniids in chaetal features." Note that on p.330 Parapar et al stated that Narayanaswamy [misspelled as Narayawasmany] & Blake (2005) commented on the genus, but this is not correct. Those authors make no mention of it. [details]
