Common names:
Notes: The treatment of H. decorum is not clear to us. Wild's deocrum (no. 84 in his draft ms.) is recorded both from Zimbabwe (divisions N and E) and also from Mozambique. However, the current treatment in SRGH is that this is a purely Mozambican species.

In addition, there is the species we have called no. 1 (aff. decorum) (no. 84A in Wild's ms, represented in Zimbabwe by Chase 2884). Further work is needed to resolve these issues.
