Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Philippi’s brief Latin description of E. pectinatus describes the operculum spines as ‘utrinque pectinatis’ (pectinate both sides) with three sharp teeth. The Latin adjective pectinatus indicates comb-like divisions. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Disused name, no types, and seems to be indeterminable, although possibly a senior synonym of Hydroides elegans. Some subsequent usages may have been H. norvegicus [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Tyrrhenian Sea unspecified. Philippi’s Mediterranean work was only in Italy, and he was based in Naples prior to 1844. 40.8327° 14.2358° (Tyrrhenian Sea, with Naples a possible point location) [details]
