Taxonomic notes
According to Mateo-Cid et al. (2013: 11-12), the type of this species has been lost and no further specimens have been found. The authors add: "In addition to reviewing the original description of J. huertae, it seems to be closely related to J. longiarthra, mainly in the morphology of both species. Furthermore, J. huertae was described based only on morphological characteristics and reproductive structures were not reported, by this reasons in this study we considerer J. huertae as a doubtful record, until locate the type specimen or find samples that are consistent with the characteristics of J. huertae." - (31 Dec 2013) - M.D. Guiry
