Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. Gressitt (1938b, 1939a, 1939b) identified this taxon as Rhadinosa reticulata (Baly, 1888)  probably based merely on external habitus. Later on, Gressitt (1950) noticed that these specimens had unequal tarsal claws a typical character for Asamangulia Maulik, 1915  ( Rhadinosa Weise, 1905  has tarsal claws symetric) and described the taxon as new species.
