  Comment: McLaughlin et al. (2005) Occurrence values: I, C; G  
    Dr. Z. Kabata states that "apparently Cauloxenus stygius was recorded only once, by its original discoverer, Cope (1872)." There may be other references to the species in the literarature, so further consideration may be needed on the status of the species at a later point
