Summary: An undirected graph on $$v$$ vertices in which the degrees of all vertices are equal to $$k$$ and each edge belongs to exactly $$\lambda$$ triangles is said to be edge-regular with parameters $$(v,k,\lambda)$$. It is proved that an edge-regular graph with parameters $$(v,k,\lambda)$$ such that $$k\geq 3b_1-3$$ either has diameter 2 and coincides with the graph $$P(2)$$ on 20 vertices or with the graph $$M(19)$$ on 19 vertices; or has at most $$2k+4$$ vertices; or has diameter at least 3 and is a trivalent graph without triangles, or the line graph of a quadrivalent graph without triangles, or a locally hexagonal graph; or has diameter 3 and satisfies $$|\Gamma_3(u)|\leq 1$$ for each vertex $$u$$.
