  • Naultinus Gray, 1842b
    • Gender: masculine
    • Original status: valid genus
    • Type species: Naultinus elegans Gray, 1842b
      • Fixation: subsequent designation by Smith (1933: 13)
    • Originally included nominal species: Naultinus pacifica, Naultinus elegans
    • NOTE: these are the currently accepted nomenclatural details, but the use of the name Naultinus pacificus by Gray (1842: 58) poses a potential problem, as has been debated by Chrapliwy, Smith & Grant (1961) and Myers (1961)

  • Naultinulus Chrapliwy, Smith & Grant, 1961
    • Gender: masculine
