1. Steinmann (1989c) spells the genus ‘ Gressitolabis’ and Hopkins et al. (2014) refer to Gressittolabis  as a synonym of Gressitolabis  . Brindle named the genus Gressittolabis  for Dr J.L. Gressitt in the original description.

2. The original description gives the date for paratype F3233.931 as 2 Aug. 1965, not 2 Jul. 1956 as on the specimen label.
