Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAdditional information P. flava is capable of regenerating anterior and posterior structures when amputated in half. In this context it has attracted research interest (Rychel et al. 2008, Humphreys et al. 2010). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAdditional information Ptychodera flava (Eschscholtz, 1825) is the first report of a hemichordate. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The two synonymous species (Spengel, 1893) were originally thought to be distinct. In the 1930's van der Horst concluded they were Ptychodera flava. The Rao 1962 manuscript also mentions this. [details]
