Distribution. This species was previously recorded from Namibia (Brown 1962) and South Africa ( Dirsh 1959).

Remarks. This genus was erected by Dirsh (1959) based on its flat dorsum which is similar to that of Plegmapterus Martinez 1898  , Plegmapteropsis Dirsh 1956  , and Calliptamuloides Dirsh 1956  . The shape of its head is more similar to that of Plegmapteropsis  ; however, it differs from Plegmapteropsis  by its posterior margin of the last abdominal tergite, supra—anal plate, hind femur and male cercus. Its taxonomic state is satisfactory or stable.
