Comments Ernst (1988a) misunderstood the description of C. pani; his concept of this species was actually based on C. aurocapitata. C. chriskarannarum (Ernst and McCord, 1987:624) is apparently synonymous with this species (Philippen, in Stubbs, 1989; McCord and Iverson, 1991). Reviewed by McCord and Iverson (1991).
