It was recombined as Holopea (Callonema) proutana by Whitfield (1882); it was recombined as Strophostylus (Anematina) proutana by Knight (1933); it was recombined as Anematina proutana by Knight (1941), Blodgett and Johnson (1992) and Wagner (2017).

If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

J. B. Knight 1941Small, subtrochiform, minutely phaneromphalous gastropods with gently oblique outer lip; whorl profile moderately arched between sutures; sutures only moderately deep; nucleus simple, dextral, not set off from the succeeding whorls; base somewhat flatly rounded, minutely phaneromphalous; columellar lip gently arcuate, thin, its upper part slightly reflexed about the minute umbilicus; parietal inductura thin; outer lip thin, gently oblique backwards from the upper suture, very slightly convex forward; ornamentation very faint lines of growth only; shell thin, its structure unknown; color pattern two revolving dark bands. The holotype measures about 10 mm. in height, 6 mm. in width, and has a pleural angle of about 45 degrees.
