Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: ZMB 6921 
CommentHas been confused with H. intestinalis, hence distribution records might be wrong. Has been reported from Sao Tome but these records are doubtful (SCHÄTTI & LOUMONT 1992).

Perret (1975) and Kluge (1993) considered H. ansorgii as a junior synonym of H. intestinalis Werner, 1897 but Henle and Böhme (2003) have presented compelling evidence that the latter is, in reality, a junior synonym of H. muriceus.

Similar species: H. echinus, H. pseudomuriceus.
