Yep, this species belongs to a genus which hasn't been described
Moved from ID Request.

 
Hasn't been described?
You got my attention... Where can I find out more about this?

 
.
See the information on the genus page for this species. Long story short, generic names were proposed, but because they were not published, have not been formally accepted. It's kind of complicated, but I believe a revision is in the works to formally name several Cochylini genera. It should be published in the next few years.
