Remarks. This species is placed in a new monotypic genus because, although in general facies it resembles the species of Neefia  described above, it differs in several important character states as indicated in Table 2. The original description by Fairmaire (1897) in the genus Cisseis Gory & Laporte, 1839  may have been sufficient in 1897, but Cisseis  is limited almost entirely to the Australasian region with 84 valid species known from Australia, three species from Papua New Guinea, one species from New Caledonia and two species from the Indo­Malayan region, one each from Indonesia and the Philippine Islands (see Barker 2002).
