Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorPublication date Fauchald (1992:72) cites the original publication date as 1974 for this species and also for E. kerguelensis, but this must be a mistake. The printed date as used elsewhere is 1972, and a library copy seen of Averincev's work was accessioned in 1973. [details]
