Reading your reply made me wonder exactly what the "current" validity of loveridgei is anyway. Last I knew, Tokar had sunk it and no one had ressurected it.

In doing some quick research, I reread parts of this paper -
http://www.fupress.net/index.php/tropicalzoology/issue/view/16
which is the original description of Eryx borri (bogus, IMHO).

But the authors point out that "rufescens" type snakes were originally described as Eryx jaculus var. sennaariensis which means that the subspecies name sennaariensis has precedence over rufescens if that taxon has any validity at all.
