Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
could be a syn. of E. quadrigeminata (1)
E. haldemani is a taxonomic problem because it intergrades with E. quadrigeminata over much of the southern and western parts of the range of E. quadrigeminata. E. "haldemani" can sometimes be almost spotless or can be very heavily darkened in Central Texas. In the Davis Mts it again appears more normal. In east Texas, the specimens can be very large and have quite a variation in the ivory markings (eburneous spots). I consider the east Texas specimens to be E. quadrigeminata, although some consider them to be E. haldemani. (Dan Heffern, pers. comm. 2015)
