Shown in LAN as junior subjective synonym of Habrotrocha bidens (Gosse, 1851).

Erected as nom.nov. pro  Macrotrachela bidens Milne, 1886 [England]. Bryce considers this distinct from Callidina bidens of Gosse.

Bartos 1951 (& Wisniewski, 1954) considers H. milnei as a distinct species.

this reflects taxonomic opinions and does not form part of the LAN proper.
[see Donner’s (1956) revision of H. bidens (in: Verhandlungen der Zoologisch-Botanischen Gesellschaft in Wien, 96) for details about this synonymy; he regards Macrotrachela bidens “Milne, 1886” only as Callidina bidens Gosse in a new combination]
