Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Rasmussen intended to describe Mediomastus fragilis "in more detail elsewhere" but it seems this did not happen. No holotype is mentioned, nor type locality, but assumed to be Isefjord. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Isefjord, Kattegat, Denmark [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType specimen There are no syntype specimens known. Warren et al. (1994) examined specimens said to be "Rasmussen's private collection from type locality" and give a "type locality" of Vellerup Vig, Isefjord, 55°44'N 11 °52'E (55.733, 11.8667), 0.5 m. How they obtained the lat/long is unstated, but it is a location inside Vellerup Vig.  [details]
