Type locality: Basco, Batan Island, Batanes Province, Philippines.  
TypesHolotype: PNM 1797 (listed as holotype in MCZ catalogue #173411) 
EtymologyNamed after Dr. Henry G. Jarecki (b. 1933 in Stettin in Poland), qualified as a physician at Heidelberg, Germany, and practiced as a psychiatrist in the USA. He gave up medicine (1970) to become a commodities dealer and made a fortune trading in precious metals. He sold that business (1986) to run an investment bank. He bought the island of Guana, British Virgin Islands (1974), and had it run as a nature reserve (Beolens et al. 2011).
