Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Audouin & Milne-Edwards (1830: 159): ''Tête distincte et munie d'antennes; trompe dépourvue de mâchoires; pieds à une seule rame; point de caroncule ni de cirrhe dorsal; branchies en forme de houppes rameuses ou d'arbuscules fixées à la base supérieure des pieds.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name Hipponoe refers to a sea-nymph of the ancient Greek mythology, a nereid named ''the temper of horses'', that is, of waves, being the daughter of Nereus and Doris. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Hipponoe Audouin & Milne-Edwards 1830 is senior to Hipponoe Gray, 1840 in Echinoidea (replaced by Tripneustes) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Audouin & Milne-Edwards used Hipponoe in 1830 for the original description (only once without accent, and in the only binomen presented, otherwise using Hipponoé as in the article title, never Hipponoa) and then used Hipponoa in 1833. Hipponoa may be an attempted belated latinisation of French Hipponoé or just carelessness (fide Kudenov, 1994, they also later used Hyponné and Hipponoë (diaeresis e)). The name of the Greek nereid in English transliteration is Hipponoe. In recent years Hipponoa has been more used by taxonomists, but Nomenclator Zoologicus has only Hipponoe, a senior homonym to an echinoid Hipponoe genus, and many authors have used Hipponoe in Polychaeta, for example Quatrefages in vol 1 of his 1866 work and also Fauvel (monograph) and also Pettibone (1963), but Hartman (catalogue) and Day (monograph), and more recently Kudenov (1994) used Hipponoa. However, Hipponoa appears to be an unjustified spelling emendation to the original, and Hipponoe has continued to be much used throughout the taxonomic history of the monotypic species, H. gaudichauda.
In an ironic twist Amaral & Nonato (1994:378) comment that Hipponoa is a misspelling in Cuvier, 1832 but themselves accidentally use the misspelling "Hypponoe" multiple times. They state " HARTMAN (1959) refere Hipponoa, com a variante Hipponoe, possivelmente modificado por uma referência (a nosso ver, simples erro tipográfico) na segunda edição de "Reino Animal" de Cuvier editado em 1832." [details]
