Original description: Chamberlin R.V. (1913). The lithobiid genera Nampabius, Garibius, Tidabius and Sigibius - Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard College, 57: 37-104, see p. 39.

Order: Lithobiomorpha

Family: Lithobiidae

Original rank: genus

Type species: Lithobius obesus Stuxberg, 1875 - by monotypy

Last taxonomic scrutiny: Jeekel C.A.W. (2005). Myriapod memoranda. Supplement 1. Nomeclator generum et familiarum Chilopodorum: a list of the genus and family-group names in the class Chilopoda from the 10th edition of Linnaeus, 1758, to the end of 1957. - Ulvenhout, 1-130, see p. 19.

Notes: according to Jeekel (2005 - Myriapod memoranda, supplement 1: 19) apparently the name Hesperobius was changed into Arebius later by Chamberlin (1916 - Bull. Mus. comp. Zool. Harvard, 57: 171); in the description of this genus the name Hesperobius is used erroneously in the place of Arebius
