Adapoid prosimian believed to have lived in the late Eocene and belonging to the notharctid subfamily Cercamoniinae; monotypic; known from a single maxillary fragment containing several cheek teeth. Some workers think that H. quercyi should be included in Archomomys. Estimated body mass 190 g. Dental formula uncertain; dental morphology suggests either insectivory, gummivory, or both.
