CommentSynonymy that of PETERS & OREJAS-MIRANDA 1970 (who also synonymized Elapomorphus nigrolineatus PETERS 1869: 439 with A. flavotorquata; however, Ferrarezzi, in his PhD thesis [1993] considered A. nigorlineata as a valid species). E. nigrolineatus is now considered a synonym of Apostolepis pymi by some authors).

Type species: Elapomorphus flavotorquatus DUMÉRIL, BIBRON & DUMÉRIL 1854 is the type species of the genus Apostolepis COPE 1862.
