Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Entodon smaragdinus is similar to E. challengeri, but differs by the peristomes. In E. smaragdinus, the exostome teeth are smooth in basal 4–5 plates, papillose above, and the endostome segments are smooth throughout. In contrast, the exostome teeth and the endostome segments are papillose throughout in E. challengeri.
