Taxon Notes:The family placement of this monotypic genus is uncertain. While it was originally placed in the Akanthophoreidae by Błażewicz-Paszkowycz & Bamber (2012), Larsen & Araújo-Silva (2014) do not include it in this family, and regard it as incertae cedis. Here we retain it in this family pending a more detailed review of its exact position, hopefully including genetic work. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further
