NoteNamed after the Latin expression solifer (adjective), meaning "bringing sunshine". Being sometimes bright coloured with yellow or orange lines, E. solifer looks like a hot summer afternoon, the sun rays smelted on the shell. A certain contrast between this "sunny" species and the sympatric E. scepta is noticed.
