Notes     (Last Modified On 10/15/2009)
general taxon notes:

Tayloria rudimenta X.L. Bai & B. C. Tan is tentatively placed under the current species. From its description it appears to be close to Entosthodon wichurae. The absence of peristome teeth in this species seems to fit better in Entosthodon than in Tayloria.
