Original description (Caporiacco 1936a: 145): [not located]

Subsequent accounts:

Roewer 1941:, p. 139

"Gluviinae, deren zweigliedriger 2. und 3. Tarsus ventral jeweils 2.2/2 Dornen und deren dreigliedriger 4. Tarsus ventral 2.2.2/2/2 Dornen trägt."

Translation: Gluviinae, whose two-segmented tarsi of legs 2 and 3 in each case bear 2.2/2 ventral spines and whose three-segmented 4th tarsus bears 2.2.2/2/2 ventral spines.

Delle Cave and Simonetta, 1971: 72

"The type specimen of Gluviema migiurtina quite clearly belongs to the Galeodidae. DI CAPORIACCO (1936) misidentified the family and quite naturally found that his specimen did not fit into any of the known taxa of the Daesiidae. It is a female apparently to be referred to the genus Galeodellus, but which will be studied in detail with the other material belonging to the Galeodidae.".

One species is included in the genus:
