Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Bendif, El M., Probert, I., Schroeder, D.C. & Vargas, C de (2013).

Comments: Dicrateria inornata Parke - no designation in Parke 1949, but Green & Pienaar 1977 considered that the other species, D. gilva Parke, was in need of re-isolation and re-investigation. Jordan et al. (2005) have therefore assumed that D. inornata is the type species. Throndsen (1997: 635) record this genus as being a member of the Family Gephyrocapsaceae.
