Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Moved from subfamily Podisminae at BugGuide on 31 January 2008. Placement in subfamily Melanoplinae follows the classification used in the Orthoptera Species File here; see Taxonomy Proposals forum topic on "Orthoptera" here.

This genus and it's closeste Californian relatives may be misplaced in tribe Podismini, and may actually be more closely related to Aeloplides (which is currently placed in the Melanoplini).
