CommentPhoto in Lambertz (2010).

R. chui and R. scriptorcibatus are tentatively allocated to Rodriguesophis due to their external similarities with R. iglesiasi. 
Etymologythe name is "the one that eats writers" and refers to the fact that the microteiids ofthe genus Calyptommatus are part ofthe diet of Phimophis scriptorcibatus. In the sandy areas near of the Sao Francisco river these lizards are popularly called as "escrivoes' (writers) because ofthe tracks leave in the sand.
