Can't open hosted feature layer in ArcGIS Desktop

I uploaded a zipped shapefile to AGOL to create a hosted Feature Layer of HYDRANTS.

I can see this hosted feature layer and edit it's points in AGOL.

GOOD:  From the item's Overview page in AGOL I can open this hosted feature layer in ArcGIS Pro (2.3.3) via opening the downloaded item.pitemx file and that works fine; I can see the features and edit them.

BAD:  However, when I try to open this hosted feature layer in ArcMap (10.6.1) I get nothing.  

DETAILS:

1) When I click Open in ArcGIS Desktop/Open in ArcMap from the item's Overview page I get the "item.pitem" download; when I try to open this file, it launches a new ArcMap desktop session, but no data layers are added to the map.

2) From ArcGIS desktop, if I try to "Add Data from ArcGIS Online", I can FIND the hosted feature layer, but when I click "Add" nothing happens.

3) Finally, if I go to Add Data, My Hosted Services, I can see that layer and add it successfully.  However, I can't edit it directly.  The only way I've found to edit it is via "Create Local Copy for Editing".

I am logged in to AGOL within ArcMap desktop.

Are these differences between AGOL/Pro, and Map expected?

I have this problem too (#2)... Using "Add Data from ArcGIS Online", I can add feature layers from AGOL ONLY if they are feature layers that reference our GIS server..     I CANNOT add any AGOL hosted feature layers though to ArcMap using "Add Data from ArcGIS Online"...

Did you ever resolve this Nina?  In ArcMap 10.8 this works for me.  Can't say for sure why it works now and not previously.

Experiencing this problem with ArcMap 10.7.1 adding a hosted feature layer. Portal item and adding through the Add Data dialog bring in no data and no error. ArcGIS Pro 2.6.1 brings in this feature layer just fine.
