The type species was described as exindusiate; indusia were first reported by Holttum in 1986. Copeland placed the species in the genus Hemigramma, in which the sori run along the veins of variably contracted fronds or pinnae. Hemigramma is here included in Tectaria, with the comment that, as arranged by Copeland, it was not a natural group.
