Berlese described H. grandis  after a nymph from Filettino (near Rome). According to the diagnosis the length of the specimen is 1.000 mm and the breadth 0.640. The type-slide (no. 103/13) is still present in the Collection, but it is in a bad condition and completely dark.

The nymph is probably related to the nymph of Hermannia convexa  (C. L. Koch, 1839).
