  Comment  
H. guttatus was considered as a junior synonym of H. bimaculatus by Boulenger (1907, 1915) and Pellegrin (1904), but was revaliyeard by Loiselle (1979, Ref. 43352).
  Etymology of generic noun  
Greek, hemis = half + Greek, chromis = a fish, perhaps a perch (Ref. 45335).
  Etymology of specific epithet  
From the Latin "guttatus" = speckled, apparently referring to the pattern of black dots in the cheek and opercular region of the type material (Ref. 43352).
