CommentThe reference given for Smith (1937: 331) is somehow in error. Lygosoma vigintiserierum is not mentioned in this paper on this page. SCHMITZ et al. (2005) found relatively high genetic variability within the L. vigintiserierum complex and speculate that it thus may be comprised of several yet undescribed species. However, these populations are morphologically very similar.
