Remarks.

Now we are not in position to give diagnostic features of this genus, for we do not know the other related genera well enough. The limits of these generic groups are not yet defined. Details of relationships among genera and subtribes remain to be worked out. In lieu of a definitive treatment of classification of Singilis  , we adopt here the position of Ball and Hilchie (1983). Now a revision of this genus is in progress. In this, the author will try to clarify its position among closely related genera, and will discuss some characters and methods proposed by Basilewsky (1984) and Casale (1998). Inferring phylogenetic relationships within Lebiini  from characters of the female reproductive tract will be offered.

The genus Singilis  as treated here may not be monophyletic; however, the sheer numbers and morphological diversity of its species, both described and undescribed, make a comprehensive revision of the group unfeasible at this time. Still, we believe that describing distinctive species will help faunal studies and contribute to the understanding of higher taxonomy.
