Diagnosis 
CommentSubspecies: Melville et al. 2016 presented evidence that the subspecies caudicinctus, graafi, infans, and slateri could be considered valid (evolutionary) species although they “acknowledge that further work is required, particularly for C. slateri and C. graafi”. Melville et al. 2016 synonymized mensarum with caudicinctus.

Lifestyle: saxicolous.

Distribution: see map in Melville et al. 2016: 3 (Fig. 1).
