This species was posted on 22 June 2011 at these websites as Hermaea sp. A  Genus: Lovén, 1844, and changed on 17 July 2011
into Hermaea sp. 01  Genus: Lovén, 1844.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
It is as Hermaea sp. 3 in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 81.
