Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Also distributed in Ceylon, Bay of Bengal and East Indies (Clark & Rowe, 1971). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Spelled E. cribosus in Vine, (1986).
Type locality: Zanzibar (Clark & Rowe, 1971).
According to Clark & Rowe (1971), E. cribosus and insignis may be synonymous, but until further material is available for comparison, the western Indian Ocean records may be arbitrarily referred to cribosus and the Pacific ones to insignis. The intermediate records from Ceylon to Singapure are doubtfully referred to cribosus[details]
