Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark non H. maculata Lesseur 1824. Pearson (1913) does not follow Semper's new name (H. arenicola): H. maculata had become accepted as a name for this species; the description of Lesseur was not adequate. Apparently more recent authors did use Semper's name. In his 1914 paper, Pearson assigns the species to a new sub-genus: (Argiodia).
Type species of the Subgenus: (Microthele) Brandt, 1835 (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Semper 1868 cited in Pearson 1913. See species remark. [details]
