CommentReports from the Venezuelan Amazonas [HR 30: 53] are in error and actually represent E. aesculapii (Marco Natera, pers. comm.). However, specimens previously identified as E. aesculapii from the localities of El Valle, Distrito
Federal, Venezuela, and Yarumal, Antioquia, Colombia, are now attributed to E. pseudocorallus (Curcio et al. 2009). Erythrolamprus pseudocorallus has also been confused with E. mimus micrurus.
