Contents: 1 species, which is endemic.
Endemism: 0% 100%
Remarks: Kaiser, Crother, Kelly, Luiselli, O'Shea, Ota, Passos, Schleip & Wüster (2013) suggested to ignore scientific names published after 1 January 2000 by R. Wells and R. Hoser. However, Cogger (2014) pointed out that such an action may be invalid, in which case Magmellia is the valid name for this genus. A case is currently being processed by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to solve this issue.
Distribution: As for the single species.
