We show that the numerators of genus zeta function associated with local hereditary orders studied by Denert can be described in terms of the joint distribution of Euler-Mahonian statistics on multiset permutations defined by Han. We use this result to deduce a reciprocity property for genus zeta functions of local hereditary orders whose associated composition is a rectangle. We also record a remarkable identity satisfied by genus zeta functions of local hereditary orders in terms of Hadamard products of genus zeta functions of maximal orders. Finally, we define Mahonian companions of excedance statistics on groups of signed and even-signed permutations.
