|Comment||Synonymy: Status not fully resolved; previously considered a synonym of Ramphotyphlps / Anilios guentheri (e.g. by ELLIS 2016). Shea and Horner (1996) said that the eastern form may be called R. nigricauda and the western form R. guentheri. Pyron and Wallach (2014) presented some morphological data; however, there is significant overlap with the former senior synonym and the species is not presented in any phylogenetic trees or under specimens examined in their paper (Ellis 2016).|
Not listed by COGGER 2014.
|Etymology||Named after Albert Günther (1830-1914), German-born zoologist at the British Museum.|
