This southern Australian species has previously been confused with the New Zealand Anneissia benhami (= Cenolia benhami, Oxycomanthus benhami), but has recently been shown to be a distinct, currently undescribed, species, see Naughton et al, 2014. It is possible that this undescribed species also belongs in the genus Anneissia.
