<<The number of species >>
It is difficult to decide the actual number of species because some species are polymorphic and resemble other species. At this time, we believe there are 20 species as follows:
H.argutifolius, H.atrorubens, H.cyclophyllus, H.dumetorum, H.foetidus, H.lividus, H.multifidus, H.niger, H.odorus, H.orientalis, H.purpurascens, H.thibetanus, H.torquatus, H.vesicarius, H.viridis, H.croaticus, H.occidentalis, H.bocconei, H.abruzzicus and H. liguricus
