Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Mörch evidently examined a museum specimen already informally named by Krøyer. Therefore he credited the name to Krøyer. Strictly this may not be correct ICZN practice, but there may have also been a Krøyer description and thus it seems best to maintain the combined authorship. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Designated as nomen oblitum by Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove (2002:165). Hydroides abbreviata is probably a senior synonym of H. elegans, but has not been used as a valid name after 1899, whereas H. elegans has hundreds of usages. Therefore art. 23.9.1 applies to maintain prevailing usage. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Saint Croix island, Virgin Islands, Caribbean Sea [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType specimen According to Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove (2002) the type specimen is not present at ZMUC and is considered lost. [details]
