 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN - Lower Risk (lc) as included in C. penicillatus  
    Comments: Hoffmeister and Lee (1967), Hall (1981), Patton (1993b), and Williams et al. (1993) considered both eremicus and atrodorsalis subspecies of C. penicillatus. Lee et al. (1996) elevated eremicus to species status, with atrodorsalis a subspecies, based on mitochondrial DNA sequence divergence and the previously recognized sharply divergent karyotypes (J. L. Patton, 1969a) and allozyme differences (Patton et al., 1981)
