Comments Type by monotypy. First account of this name in Grove & Sturt 1886 (ref. 000426) as "Pseudo-rutilaria. Nov. subgenus", however the name was invalid because "there was no positive indication of the genus to which it was to be attributed" (see Ross & Sims 1987, p. 276, ref. 003151). According to Ross & Sims 1987 (ref. 003151), the subgeneric name Rutilaria subgenus Pseudorutilaria was validly published by De Toni & Levi 1887 (ref. 006842), as also was the specific name Rutilaria monile. Later, De Toni 1894 (ref. 000951) (p. 854) treated Pseudorutilaria as a genus, ascribing the name to Grove & Sturt, and validly published the combination Pseudorutilaria monile.
