All the hosts are closely related in that they are members of the same tribe and subtribe (Moore, 1959). Corbet and Hill (1992: 293) considered simus a species of Calfosciurus but Hoffmann et al. (1993: 428) retained it in Glyphotes. [ex. Durden, L. A., Musser, G. G. 1994. Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History 218: 1-90]
