CommentLeptognathus alternans FISCHER 1885 has been removed from the synonymy of D. incerta by PASSOS et al. (2004). D. copei has been synonymized with D. incerta by PASSOS et al. 2004 and revalidated by HARVEY 2008. However, D. copei may be a synonym of D. praeornata (here still a synonym of Dipsas latifrontalis).The neotype designated by PASSOS et al. (2004) is invalid fide HARVEY 2008.

D. copei is not listed by GASC & RODRIGUES 1980. 
EtymologyD. copei was named after Edward Drinker Cope (1840-1897), American herpetologist.
