Lines like that are caused by the mhshow-show-<type> directives that
are either in your mh-profile or the system mhn.defaults (or perhaps
some builtin defaults too).

If the directive contains the %p escape sequence it calls %l before
pausing, and %l generates the line.

If you change the directive in your profile to

mhshow-show-text/html: /usr/local/bin/lynx -force_html -child -dump '%F' 
|/home/martin/etc/nuisancefilter |/home/martin/etc/noblanks |/usr/bin/more

i.e., remove the %p, it will suppress the part type listing, but also the
pausing before part display.

This info is hidden in the mhshow man page.

Hope I understood your query correctly and that this helps.
