It is closely related to E. sordidus (Muller 1890) but differs in size and ornamentation of the carapace, number and length of bristles, teeth and claws on the limbs, and structure of the mandible.

It is hypothesize that vespertine planktonic mating is an adaptive behavior that exists in many myodocopids and is either the ancestral state for the group or partially or fully convergent in multiple species.
