CommentThe species is morphologically most similar to R. hamatus, with which it was previously confused, and to R. endoterus, but differs from these taxa in various meristic and qualitative scalation features.

Type species: Ramphotyphlops pilbarensis Aplin & Donnellan 1993 is the type species of the subgenus Adelynhosertyphlops Hoser 2013: 47 (subgenus of Libertadictus Wells & Wellington 1984), both synonyms of Anilios (fide SHEA 2015).
