Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, but for H. homoceros it is likely that the Greek (homos) 'uniform' and (keros) 'horn', refers to the opercular verticil spines. Pixell appears to have named 'homoceros' as the opposite to 'heteroceros' (her error for the existing H. heterocerus [sic]) which she mentions. [details]
