Comments Introduced in Van Heurck as Stenopterobia de Brébisson in litteris. Four species included in Van Heurck, Surirella Baileyi Lew., S. intermedia Lew., S. delicatissima Lew., and S. anceps Lew. Taylor (1929, p. 222, ref. 000877) cited "Brébisson in litt. 1868". The name seems to have first appeared in the published literature in Cleve 1881 (ref. 000223), p. 7 as "Surirella" (Stenopterobia ?) gracillima Grun. mpt.; it was however not validly published as a subgenus name in Cleve because it was lacking a description.
