I think we can all agree that Eryx taxonomy is kind of a mess and in dire need of revision. I know there is some new molecular data in the works that includes "all" described species of Boid, but I'm not sure when it will be published. If I get an undergrad interested in snake phylogenetics I'll be sure to put them to work figuring out what is going on with the Ruffies, finding museum vouchered species may not be easy though!
