See comment under Triprion within which this taxon was long placed. Smith, Arif, Nieto-Montes de Oca, and Wiens, 2007, Evolution, 61: 2075-2085, removed Triprion spatulatus to Diaglena to remedy the paraphyly of "Triprion" with respect to Anotheca. Trueb, 1970, Univ. Kansas Publ. Mus. Nat. Hist., 18: 602, had considered Diaglena to be a junior synonym of Triprion.
