Sometimes considered to form superspecies with G. passerinum, G. brodiei, G. perlatum, G. californicum, G. gnoma and G. cobanense, but DNA evidence clearly shows that G. passerinum and G. californicum are not closely related. Formerly treated as race of G. gnoma; recently split on basis mainly of vocalizations. Monotypic.
