  Comment: Holmberg spells the specific epithet as humahuacę at the top of page 60 and as humahuakę in the subheading for the description of the species on page 67 of Holmbeg (1909). Corrected to humahuacae per ICZN Ligature of the letters a and e (ę) is not permitted in scientific names under ICZN Article 27, and is emendable to ae. But note ICZN Article 58.1 deems names differing only in use of ae or e as identical
