According to Papenfuss (in Silva, Basson & Moe, 1996), the name Kallymenia dentata was misapplied to this species by Delf & Michell (1921: 106, Three Anchor Bay record).

According to Silva, Basson & Moe (1996) the name Euhymenia schizophylla was used by Hohenacker, 1860: no. 374 but seemingly not validated, and treat it as a misapplied name for Kallymenia agardhii R.
