CommentType species: Dryocalamus tristrigatus GÜNTHER 1858 is the type species of the genus Dryocalamus GÜNTHER 1858.

Synonymy: Dryocalamus is currently (2017) nested within Lycodon (e.g. see pylogenetic tree in Wostl et al. 2017), hence the Philippine Lycodon must be moved to a new genus or Dryocalamus synonymized with Lycodon. Figueroa et al. 2016 synonymized Dryocalamus with Lycodon.
