Tabacaru (1993) recognized that the genus could not belong to the Synocheta and Schmalfuss (2003) included it into the higher Oniscidea (the Crinocheta) and hypothesised that the genus might belong to the family Detonidae, close to the genus Armadilloniscus.

The biology of rhinophorids is scarcely known, except for some Afrotropical and Palaearctic records, which larval stages are reported as endoparasitoids of woodlice (Crustacea: Isopoda: Oniscidea) (Bedding 1973; Pape 1986).

On the basis of the diversity of environments, the Oniscidea, variously known as slaters, woodlice, sow bugs, and pill bugs, are the most successful of terrestrial crustaceans today (Carefoot and Taylor, 1995).
