CommentU. ebenaui was paraphyletic with respect to U. phantasticus in a study by GREENBAUM et al. (2007).

This species is characterized by (1) an almost straight line of dermal folds between the eyes (interorbital ridge) that connects the supraciliary spines, (2) a short (TaL/SVL 0.216–0.398, mean 0.317± 0.07) and narrow (TalW/SVL 0.047–0.088, mean 0.066± 0.02) original tail; (3) relatively short forelimbs (ForL/SVL 0.333–0.421, mean 0.382± 0.03); and (4) a blackish oral mucosa [from RATSOAVINA et al. 2011].
