Coordinator notes: Orthimella fidelis (Grote, 1874) was formerly in the genus Himella Grote, 1874, a junior homonym of Himella Dallas 1852, ZooKeys, 788: 249. This name was synonymized with Himella intractata (Morrison, 1874) in the 1983 Hodges Checklist which regarded the publication year of fidelis to be 1875. The synonymy was reversed in Poole (1989), ZooKeys, 40:154
