  • Herbertus hutchinsiae (Gottsche & Rabenh.) A. Evans [3 specimens from WTU] (looks like a ssp of H. aduncus? Though ITIS accepts this name [1]) two 1913 records of this species
  • Herbertus sakurai (Warnst.) Hatt. [2 specimens from UBC] (ITIS indicates synonymous with H. dicranus [2])
  • Herbertus sakuraii (Warnst.) Hatt. [80 specimens from NY, UBC] (ITIS indicates synonymous with H. dicranus [3])
  • Herbertus sendtneri (Nees) Evans [12 specimens from NY, UBC] (possible mis-id? Only one record from the region, a collection by Worley, and he did not treat this species)
