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]
