Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, but for H. microtis the 'micro' derives from Greek micros 'small'. The Latinizations 'microtis' and 'microtus' are in use as both genus and species-group names for small-eared biota. Whether the same meaning applies for H. microtis is unclear. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality North America (unspecified) as “ad Americam borealem” on Argopecten irradians (was as Pecten), collected by A. B. Mayer, presumably on the Atlantic coast as A. irradians is the bay scallop of that region [details]
