Chevalier's (in fact, Perrot's) description in 1907 lacks diagnostic elements and collection number references, so the name published in that year should be regarded as a nomen nudum. Besides, Dubard (1915) kept the genus Dumoria. Only the unintentional description given by Heine (1963) is the valid one (Mouly et al. 2010).
