Note: Most of the literature records for this species come under the name Erthesina fullo, a species which only occurs in the oriental region. Specimens from Indian region are probably Erthesina acuminata. See the generic page on Erthesina for a more detailed discussion.
"Erthesina fullo Thunb. [see above note] is eaten by the Nagás, an Assamese tribe." (Hoffmann, 1947)
