Clearly McIntosh was nodding to those around him who would know who this is, but it is not so immediately obvious now. Perhaps it was his mother, Eliza, and perhaps she was the E.

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Although Tebble & Chambers (1982) placed as indeterminable, Barnich & Fiege (2009: 49) also appear to have examined the syntypes and comment that "Although the two syntypes of Lagisca elisabethae McIntosh, 1900 have lost their elytra today, the typical reticulate pattern of the elytra was described by McIntosh (1900), thus leaving no doubt on the synonymy with H. impar" [details]
