This genus is now considered to only comprise arbuscular species from the Atlantic; Indo-Pacific species previously placed here are now mostly included in other genera. The two Indo-Pacific species still included here require further study to confirm their positions, see Ekins, Erpenbeck, Goudie & Hooper, 2020. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
