From editor or global species database
Additional 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]

Additional information Ptychodera flava (Eschscholtz, 1825) is the first report of a hemichordate. [details]

Taxonomy 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]
