I suspect this is a case where, if it's worthwhile to make the effort for the 
purpose, your net will need to be cast further back than the last ten 
years, probably right back to the original descriptions - of which there 
are not many to go through. George & Hartmann-Schroder (1985 - 
Synopses of the British Fauna 32) reprint illustrations of several 
European species.    

However, have you checked Triton, Biosis's web search engine for 
names in Zoological Record? It returns the ZR volume no's in which a 
genus is recorded (for the period since, I think, 1978).
