Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic name if formed by the name of the closely related genus Polydora Bosc, 1802, followed by the suffix -ella, feminine of the Latin suffix -ellus and normally added to a noun to form a diminuitive of that noun, and presumably refers to the smaller size of the type species of the genus, Polydorella prolifera Augener, 1914 in relation to species of Polydora.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat All known species live on the surface of sponges in the Indo-Pacific, and form colonies by asexual paratomy. [details]
