Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. Most likely H. pacificus relates to the Pacific Ocean from which the serpulid came, and the name form is analogous to H. norvegicus [sic] with which the species is compared. However, Pacific Ocean comes from Spanish/Portuguese Mar Pacífico "peaceful sea" and in Latin pacificus -a -um is an adjective, thus H. pacifica would be the gender correct spelling [details]
