We investigate a correlation between the dark matter content of elliptical
galaxies and their ellipticity that was initially reported in 2014. We use new
determinations of dark matter and ellipticities that are posterior to that
time. Our data set consists of 237 elliptical galaxies passing a strict set of
criteria. We find a relation between the mass-to-light ratio and ellipticity
that is well fit by M/L = (14.1 \pm 5.4)?, which agrees with the result
reported in 2014.
