Roewer originally created the genus Maindronia in 1910[1], but this proved to be a junior homonym, so he replaced it with the genus Strandia[2]. He placed 21 species into this genus[3] and one species has been added subsequently[4]. Staręga[5] has suggested that this should be synonymized with Gagrella, but this has not been formally done.
