The genus was erected by American botanist Albert Charles Smith in 1985, in Flora Vitiensis Nova 3, containing five species, only three of which from Fiji and Vanuatu are generally accepted as belonging to the genus.[1][2] Its is closely related to Kermadecia (where its species were once placed) and Sleumerodendron, both endemic to New Caledonia[3].
