Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Entodon plicatus can be confused with E. macropodus, but it differs from the latter by its exostome teeth changing from cross-striolate at base to vertically striolate to papillose or smooth above. Townsend (1991) reduced E. plicatus to a synonym of E. macropodus.
