From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Currently a synonym of H. operculata, but might be molecularly distinct. [details]

Etymology Not stated. Possibly spiny-bottom from Latin noun basis and adjective spinosus. Basal spines on the main opercular spines are mentioned (not figured). [details]

Grammatical gender Treated as adjectival although arguably an invariant noun phrase in apposition. The original masculine ending for a compound with a feminine noun, was incorrect, but under the Code as an incorrect Latinization cannot be changed. However, it is likely Straughan was unaware 'basis' was (strictly) a noun in Latin meaning pedestal and instead she had used it literally as 'base', intending an adjectival compound name, strangely masculine. Therefore the name has been treated as a gender variable adjective, and in the past corrected for gender to feminine 'basispinosa' [details]
