Abstract
    Comparisons are made between the species currently called Clausophyes ovata and other Clausophyes species. It is concluded that Cl. Ovata should be removed to another genus and, consequently, the genus Kephyes gen. nov. is established for it. The relationships of all clausophyid genera are briefly discussed.
