I would call them

Subdistant but again it’s a bit of a subjective call. This species is described as having gills close to nearly distant which is not very helpful.

What would you call them?

I’m still learning.

-Oh, and thanks for the compliment on my notes!

I would not call the gills close but that is a subjective call. H. flavescens is generally considered a synonym.
