Units like the Lancers (Arid, Frontier, Elite, Standard), having multiple appearances, would need to be changed to one entry in the Codex, similar to the Eximus Codex entries.
Units like the Eximus entries would need to be changed to faction-specific names. For instance,

Grineer Flameblades now use a Heat Sword instead of the placeholder Prova.

EDIT 1: Obviously some units will appear more frequently than others, and others less so.
-added the Notes section
-added an additional effect to the Punisher, Atterax wraps around the player (Rakshal's suggestion)
EDIT 2: Added rarity of spawning to all enemies
-suggestion for Flameblades-uses Heat Sword
