Biographical & Type Information - H
Haglund, Carl Johan Emil (b. 1837; d. 1901) - Collection deposited in the Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet, Stockholm, Sweden (NHRS). Haglund usually indicated which of the two sexes he had when he made his descriptions, but in his early papers he did not indicate how many of each sex. When both sexes are indicated, they are definitely STS. When only one sex is given, and the measurements are not given in a range, it is likely he only had a single specimen, but we cannot assume this, so in nearly all cases Haglund’s types should be considered to be STS. In some of his later papers, he did indicate how many specimens he had, so in some cases a single specimen should be considered to be a HT. Citation: Sjöstedt (1902).
Hahn, Carl Wilhelm (b. Dec. 16, 1786; d. 1836) - In 1831, started the series Die Wanzenartigen Insekten. After his death, Herrich-Schäffer, continued this publication until 1853. Bergroth (1919) gives information on the dates of publication of Die Wanzenartigen Insekten. Citation: Bonnet (1945).

Harold, Edgar Baron von (b. 1830; d. Aug. 1, 1886, Possenhofen, near München, Germany) - Mainly a coleopterist. According to Horn et al. (1990), some of his collection may be in the Paris Museum (MNHN), but most of his type material is either in the Berlin Museum (ZMHB) or in the Munich Museum (ZSMC).

Harris, Halbert Marion (b. July 18, 1900, Cascilla, MS, USA; d. Aug. 18, 2000, Baton Rouge, LA, USA) - Early training at Mississippi A&M College, graduate work at Iowa State University. Became Assistant Professor at Iowa State in 1925 where he continued his professional career until 1961. Later (1972-1980) became a Visiting Scientist at Louisiana State University. Worked on various heteropteran groups, especially the Nabidae and Rhopalidae, but also in association with C. Drake on the Anthocoridae and various semi-aquatic groups. According to Slater et al. (2002), "most of his primary types are deposited in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., with exception of the Berytidae, which are in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The bulk of his collection, totaling more than 20,000 specimens is in the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum (Department of Entomology, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge)." See Slater et al. (2002) for biographical information, a bibliography, and a list of new taxa described.

Heer, Oswald (b. Aug. 31, 1809, Glarus, Switzerland; d. Sept. 27, 1883, Zürich, Switzerland) - Worked primarily on fossil insects. According to Horn et al. (1990), part of his collection went directly to the Ent. Inst. Techn. Hochschule Zürich, and part went to H. Escher-Zollikofer who then gave it to the same museum.

Herrich-Schäfer, Gottlieb August Wilhelm (b. Dec. 17, 1799, Regensburg, Germany; d. Apr. 14, 1874, Regensburg, Germany) - Collection was deposited in the Zoologische Staatssammlung, Münich, Germany (ZSMC), but it is believed that most of his collection was destroyed by WWII bombing. Some Podisus types may reside in the Paris Museum (MNHN), and several types have been found in the Zoologisches Museum, Humboldt Universität, Berlin (ZMHB), among their undetermined material (see Rider 1993). Bergroth (1919) gives information pertaining to the dates of publication of Die Wanzenartigen Insekten, published first by Hahn, but then continued by Herrich-Schäffer after Hahn’s death. Citations: Anonymous (1858, 1874a-e), Hofmann (1874), Saunders (1874), Kraatz (1875), and Musgrave (1932).
Hoberlandt, Ludvík (b. Jan. 22, 1918, Prague; d. Mar. 15, 2005, Prague) - Graduated from Charles University, Prague in 1948, but had already become a member of the staff of the Department of Zoology, National Museum in Prague, in 1945. Was a long time editor (1947-1997) for the Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae. Participated in a number of expeditions to Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey. Types should be at the National Museum in Prague (NMPC). Obituaries: Heiss (2005), Jelínek (2005). Other citations: Štys (1978), Ježek (1987, 1988), and Stehlík (1999).

Horváth, Géza (b. Nov. 23, 1847, Csécs, Hungary; d. Sept. 8, 1937, Budapest, Hungary) - Collection conserved in the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest, Hungary (HNHM); if types were deposited elsewhere, Horváth usually indicated this in the original description. For example, he had access to several other important collections (Puton, Reuter, etc.); types described from their collections will be in other museums (indicated in the original description). Horváth nearly always listed the sexes which he examined, but there is no indication of how many specimens of each sex. He also usually gives length and width measurements. Nearly all of his types should be considered to be STS; in a few cases he would indicate that he had a unique specimen, etc., so those specimens could be considered to be a HT.
