In Ziegler et al. (2004: 34), ZFMK numbers of Lycodon cf. paucifasciatus and Dinodon cf. rufozonatum were interchanged. In addition, in that same publication, fig. 44 depicts Lycodon paucifasciatus, but it was interchanged in the pdf file of that paper with fig. 43.
|Etymology||This specific name is based on the Latin adjectives paucus, meaning “few” or “little”, and “fasciatus”, banded, due to the low number of dorsal bands of the holotype.|
