Editor's comment Wehe and Fiege (2002) commented the taxon was questionable (in context of the subsequent author Red Sea record they included). As Hydroides exaltata vesiculosa (q.v.) of Managareva the name requires review, appears likely to be a synonym, but currently remains valid. [details]

Etymology Not stated, but H. exaltata vesiculosa was evidently named for its vesicular operculum spine. [details]
