Select only geometry by name and not groups

Hi
So I have a scene with hundreds of retopo'd objects.
All of these objects have been organised in to groups.

The retopo'd objects have the prefix "retopo_" so when I type this in to the search box in Maya it does bring up all the objects, but the Groups show up as well, which is not good.

So, is there anyway to select "Only Geometry" with the Prefix and the groups stay hidden?
And why do groups appear in the first place? when they dont have the prefix?

Thanks for any help
Matt
