Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The genus is named after Polydora, one of the Oceanides of the Ancient Greek mythology, minor goddesses and water nymphs of rivers, fountains, subterranean springs, wells, lakes, clouds, winds, breezes, sunsets and sunrises, and daughters of the gods Oceanus and his wife Tethys. According to Bosc (1802: 151) ''Il [Bosc himself] l'a appelé [the genus] Polydore, nom d'une nymphe de la mer de la suite de Nérée.'' [details]
