Differential diagnosis. The habitus of E. fisheri ( Fig. 65) is very similar to that of several other members of the Costatus group; reliable determinations will be based on examination of the aedeagus. The aedeagus is somewhat similar to that of E. costatus in general proportions ( Figs. 69, 71), including being broad in lateral view. However, the median lobe shape and the shape of the parameres differ markedly in the two species.

Distribution. Currently known from Honduras and Mexico ( Fig. 142).
