Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The specific epithet calcarea seems to be a lapsus calami of calcaria, feminine of the Latin adjective calcarius and meaning 'of or pertaining to lime', and presumably refers to the habitat of the species, found ''living in minute tubular cavities in the limestone rocks'' at Whitehead, Belfast Lough, Northern Ireland (Templeton, 1836: 234).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat ''Found in the pools on the rocks at Whitehead, Belfast Lough, living in minute tubular cavities in the limestone rocks, the tentacula alone projecting, and kept by the animal in constant motion. Stones every where on our shores are met with perforated by these minute animals.'' (Templeton, 1836: 234) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality British Isles, Northern Ireland, Whitehead, Belfast Lough, 54.7572º, -5.7040º (gazetteer), intertidal shoreline in limestone.  [details]
