No material, type or otherwise, could be located at the AMNHAbout AMNH, CASAbout CAS, CMNAbout CMN, MCZAbout MCZ, NMNHAbout NMNH, RBCMAbout RBCM, ROMAbout ROM, SBMNHAbout SBMNH, or YPMAbout YPM. Based on characters noted in the original description, the species was assigned to Kirchenpaueria Jickeli, 1883  by Cairns et al. (2002), as K. paucinema  .
