This group is regarded here as a full genus, following Marshall & Spencer (2013), with Striacallista as a synonym. Huber (2010) regarded both of these as subgenera of Callista. This group is in urgent need of a detailed revision, including a molecular evaluation. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
