General Discussion

The taxonomic status of E. fallax is problematic; often treated as conspecific with E. ambigens, or the later two taxa included within a more broadly circumscribed E. uniglumis.

This taxon has been reported from a handful of localities in our region, but no definitive specimens have been seen.
