Comments Type by monotypy. The name was first introduced in Schmidt et al. 1890, pl. 149, fig. 18 (ref. 000807) as "Grovea pedalis A.S. (Biddulphia pedalis Gr.& St.)" without mention of being a new genus, and without description. It was therefore not validly published because “a genus name is not validly published by the mere mention of the subordinate taxa included in the genus concerned” (see ICBN Art. 34.1/d). Van Heurck 1896 provided the validating description.
