For Boxshall & Halsey (2004, p.491) the subgenus (Dahl, 1912) is considered as full generic status pending phylogenetic revision of the whole family at the generic level.
Gardner & Szabo, 1982 (p.98) consider C. affinis a junior synonym of this species.
After us, this species is noted for the first time in the Red Sea by El-Sherif & Aboul Ezz (2000, p.72).
