Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority McIntosh identified his specimen as Enipo kinbergi, but included this comment: "I have placed this under Malmgren's genus and species, supposing that he had overlooked the ventral bristles with the bifid tip. Should they be absent in his form, then the species from St. Andrews should bear the specific name of Elisabethae, from its discoverer." Tebble & Chambers (1982: 59), examine the original material and use the name Enipo elisabethae McIntosh, 1900, maintaining it as distinct from E. kinbergi Malmgren, 1865 [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Enipo elisabethae McIntosh, 1900 is NOT the same as Lagisca elisabethae McIntosh, 1900. See comments on authority [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. Assumed named after Eliza McIntosh, the mother of William McIntosh [details]
