Comments:Does not include flora; see Hill and Rozendaal (1989). Reviewed in part by Bates and Harrison (1997) and Hendrichsen et al. (2001b). Multiple subspecies have been recognized in the past, but recent studies suggest that these are not justified; see Corbet and Hill (1992) and Sinha (1999). This taxon is sometimes spelled hardwickei or hardwicki but most recent authors (e.g., Corbet and Hill, 1992; Koopman, 1993; Sinha, 1999; Hendrichsen et al., 2001b) have used the spelling hardwickii.
