CommentSynonymy: Due to the absence of a type specimen, it is not possible to definitively allocate Phyria punctulata to any known species. On the basis of the type locality (Port Essington), the name has been placed in the synonymy of G. australis (Bauer 1994).

Type species: Gehyra australis GRAY 1845 is the type species of the genus Phyriadoria WELLS & WELLINGTON 1985.
