|Comment||M. S. Khan (personal communication, cited in GRIFFITH et al. 2000) has suggested that E. poonaensis may be a junior synonym of taeniolatus, which would render the genus monotypic. However, Taylor (1936: 110) believed|
that more than one species might be included within E. taeniolatus, and recommended further investigation of the systematics of the taeniolatus group.
