Das Typenmaterial von Caligus rapax von H. Milne Edwards, 1840, besteht aus vier erwachsenen Weibchen, die von dem Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris erworben wurden. Die Art ist wiederholt beschrieben worden. Wie von Krøyer (1863) vermutet, stimmen "C. rapax" von Baird, 1850, von Steenstrup & Lütken, 1861, und von späteren Autoren nicht mit der Art von H. Milne Edwards überein. C. gurnardi Krøyer wurde von R. R. Parker (1965) neu beschrieben und ist C. rapax H. Milne Edwards sehr ähnlich; trotz des Mangels an Zwischenbeispielen wurden jedoch beständige Unterschiede wahrgenommen. Das Material kann als ausreichend betrachtet werden, um die Art C. gurnardi aufrecht zu erhalten.
