Notes 
From editor or global species database
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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Multiple Indian Ocean localities as the syntypes (as only one NHM specimen lot 1924.6.13.147) came from the Maldive area (specified as Miladumadulu Atoll and Minikoi), and from off Zanzibar.  [details]
