Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Hartman Catalogue tentatively suggested H. minax and H. monoceros were the same. Pillai (1971: 112) maintained the separation, Gibbs (1971: 202) regarded H. monoceros as a closely allied species, and Imajima (1976: 129) synonymized them, although without comment. [details]
