(1986) or Watson and Dippenaar's (1987) revision; Crawford-Cabral (1989a, 1996) considered nigratus conspecific with flavescens, the senior synonym. Watson (1990) considered these taxa in nigratus. Meester et al. (1986) listed nigratus as a synonym of G. pulverulenta. G. shortridgei and annulatus provisionally included here (see comments under G. pulverulenta).
