Some authors have considered E. timida a junior synonym of E. viridus (e.g. Bergh, 1872; 1886; Schmekel & Portmann, 1982). However, the review by Bouchet (1984) of Elysiidae has convinced Jensen (1992) and others (e.g. Thompson & Jaklin, 1988) that both species are valid and distinct (Jensen, 1992).
