Status The type species was "in so far as is known" regarded as a Leodamas by Hartman (1957: 295), Blake (2017: 50) thus included it in a Leodamas group of species, but he regarded it as incertae sedis, as it was a very short anterior fragment according to Hartman. This seems a realistic assignment. [details]
