Wallach (2020a: 10) erected a new genus Virgotyphlops for the typhlopid snake species Eryx braminus Daudin, 1803, which had previously been referred by Hedges et al. (2014) to their genus Indotyphlops. Unfortunately, this new generic nomen is nomenclaturally unavailable, and should therefore not be used as valid as long as it has not been properly published.
