Cobb, 1920 and Funaria v.d. Linde, 1938, but differs from them in
having a pore-like vulva and a straight odontophore which is sclerotized
only at its base. From Bertzuckermania Khera, 1970 it differs
in having an offset lip region, straight odontostyle and odontophore and
a pore-like vulva. It resembles Xenochium Siddiqi, 1964 especially
in lip region and odontophore but differs in having a shorter basal enlarged
part of the oesphagus and didelphic gonad.
