Taxonomy The taxonomic status of this species is unclear. Calder (1988) regarded its as a junior synonym of H. arge Clarke, 1882, while others (e. g. Bouillon et al., 1997) kept is distinct based size differences, zoogeographical distribution, and the observation that H. arge is larviparous. An additional difference is the substrate. While H. hooperii was originally found on a gastropod, the colony of H. arge grew on Zostera seagrass. At present, it seems not possible to reach definite conclusion, new detailed investigations must re-address the problem. [details]
