Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology McIntosh (1900: 330) states "Named after the best benefactress in Marine Zoology my museum ever had." Clearly McIntosh was nodding to those around him who would know who this is, but it is not so immediately obvious now. Perhaps it was his mother, Eliza, and perhaps she was the E. M. noted as the collector of the worm in 1870 and also the collector of Enipo elisabethae (a different taxon). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus indeterminable, thus doubtful species (cf. Tebble & Chambers 1982) (R. Barnich) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Although Tebble & Chambers (1982) placed as indeterminable, Barnich & Fiege (2009: 49) also appear to have examined the syntypes and comment that "Although the two syntypes of Lagisca elisabethae McIntosh, 1900 have lost their elytra today, the typical reticulate pattern of the elytra was described by McIntosh (1900), thus leaving no doubt on the synonymy with H. impar" [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Off St Andrews, Scotland. "Procured from the debris brought by fishing-boats from the off-shore waters, St. Andrews, 1870 (E. M.)" Therefore a specimen collected thirty years before publication. [details]
