Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus D. excentricus elongatus was not considered by Mortensen (1948) or any subsequent worker to be a valid taxon [...]. It is not consistent to name a subspecies based on slight changes in length to width ration without also naming new taxa on the basis of many other features that can vary as much, if not more than test width. [details]
