Distribution. This species was previously recorded from South Africa (Dirsh 1956).

Remarks. This genus was erected by Dirsh (1956a) on the basis of flat pronotum, narrow fastigium of vertex and trilobate subgenital plate of a female. This genus resembles Calliptamulus  by its shape of the male cercus. Its taxonomic status is not satisfactory. The SANC collection contains a few specimens, which may be unique species.
