Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription author: "Je crois au contraire devoir distinguer de l'Eupomatus pectinatus un Ver dont les soies diffèrent notablement de celles des espèces de Philippi. Sou premier segment thoracique est garni de soies à trois po in tes et de soies capillaires très-minces, rappelant un peu les organes cle l'Eupomatus pectinatus, mais bien distinctes de ceux de l'Eupomatus uncinatus, que je figure ici pout· la première fois (fig. 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d, 6e). Les soies bordées des autres anneaux thoraciques possèdent un limbe très-large. Les soies en étrille de l'abdomen présentent un fort crochet soutenant la lame pectinée, et elles ne peuvent être confondues avec les soies abdominales des deux autres espèces. Les uncini thoraciques ont six denticules. Cet Eupomatus, que je désigne sous le nom d' E. affinis, portait deux opercules. L'opercule de remplacement, le plus régulier, est surmonté par une sorte de cupule à six pointes." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Zibrowius (1971) included E. affinis Marion, 1885 in H. helmata (Iroso, 1921). This is not possible as E. affinis is senior. E. affinis is not a nomen oblitum as Gourret (1902) reportedly used Hydroides affinis (not seen, fide BHL listing link. Also Zibrowius (1968) used the name as valid. Thus the name has been used as valid after 1899 (Art 23.9). [details]
