Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Unspecified Mediterranean, but can be narrowed to the Tyrrhenian Sea coast of Italy as Philippi’s activities were in western Italy, and plausibly to Naples as he was based there prior to 1844, with Naples shore (40.8327°, 14.2358° map estimate) a possible point location. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Zibrowius (1971) reported it is impossible to decide what Philippi's species is from the description and the poor figure of the operculum, but the original name Eupomatus uncinata, and its recombination names Hydroides uncinatus/uncinata (Eupomatus is invalid) have been used for specimens assignable to at least 10 different taxa described subsequently. Philippi compared his specimen to Sabella euplaeana Delle Chiaje, 1822, which is also an indeterminable Hydroides. [details]
