Originally described within Harveya, H. alba Hepper was transferred to Alectra, and nearly accommodated in its own monotypic genus. Recently published phylogenetic analyses support the placement of this species within Harveya as originally suggested by Hepper. The transfer is made here, and Harveya wysockiana is synonymised with H. alba.
