Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology After the locality. Florida is Spanish for flowery land. A better adjectival formation would have been floridensis, but floridanus and floridana are widely used with gender agreement with genus as if adjectival Latin. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpecimen Peabody Museum, Yale University? (not currently listed in the YPM online catalogue). Bush (1910) had viewed a mass of two or three hundred tubes in the Museum [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Eupomatus floridanus Bush, 1910 is senior objective synonym to Hydroides rostrata Iroso, 1921, as both are names proposed for the specimens and description published in an identification by Ehlers, 1887 attributed to E. uncinatus  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy new name proposed in text by Bush for Eupomatus uncinatus sensu Ehlers, 1887, an identification as Philippi's E. uncinatus by Ehlers. Bush introduced the name as follows: "Eupomatus Floridanus nom. nov. for E. uncinatus Ehlers, 1887 (non Philippi, 1844), from 7 fathoms off Cape Dear Rio, Florida, has 11 very long, much curved spines with inner basal spinule on upper cup and about 30 deep points on edge of lower one. This does not agree with the operculum of E. uncinatus from the Mediterranean (a. fact mentioned by Ehlers)." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Unknown, near Florida, Caribbean Sea. Ehlers (1887:286 records the locations as "Cape Dear Rio", and also "Inside fishing ground Cape Rear" but these are probably transcription errors as the placenames do not exist.  [details]
