From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Also distributed in Ceylon, Bay of Bengal, East Indies and north Australia (Clark & Rowe, 1971); Australia (Rowe & Gates, 1995).

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Spelt E. ovata by Sloan et al. (1979), Loisette et al/ (1983, Clark & Rowe (1971) and Rowe & Gates (1995).
Kier (1962) has revived the name oviformis Gmelin, 1791 in place of ovata, sice he considers ovatus Leske to be the type-species of Echinanthus and anyway of uncertain affinities. In order to avoid such an undesirable change of a well-known name, the International Commission has been asked to place the name Echinolampas ovata (Leske) on the Official List (Clark & Rowe, 1971).
Type data: status and whereabouts undetermined. Type locality: unknown (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
