From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark According to Marshall & Rowe (1981) the preliminary identification of the Malagasy specimens placed them in three different species (H. africana, H. delagoa and H. madagascarensis), but are provisionally allocated to the specie madagascarensis because of locality. Species found in East Africa need revision when sufficient material available. [details]
