Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Augener 1913 mistakenly introduced 'heterochaeta' as a spelling error for the correct spelling E heterosetosa McIntosh, and also he incorrectly cited Ehlers (1897: 51) as if using the same misspelling. Hartman catalogue (1959: 205) referred the name 'heterochaeta' to E. heterosetosa McIntosh, but did not indicate it was a lapsus rather than an original name. She appears to consider the name as an original taxon and includes a type locality. Likewise San Martin (2005: 124) included the name in the synonymy of E. heterosetosa without noting it was a lapsus, but repeated the incorrect indication that Ehlers had misspelled the name in 1897. He did not. Apparently San Martin did not notice the Ehlers (1897) original used the correct spelling. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling E. heterochaeta is simply a spelling error for the correct E. heterosetosa, and was not intended as a new taxon [details]
