According to Hayman and Hill (1971) and Koopman (1975), this species includes angolensis, dobsoni, and guineensis, but not brockmani; but see Böhme and Hutterer (1979) who correctly treated guineensis as a separate species. See Brown and Dunlop (1997); also see Kock et al. (2002), who discussed differences between landeri and denti.
