Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name hemichordate is derived from the Greek prefix hemi ("half") and the Latin chorda ("cord"). As the name implies, hemichordates share some characteristics with chordates. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorFossil range Hemichordates were present throughout the mid-Cambrian, but recently a large and well-preserved pterobranch discovery places them in the early Cambrian.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Hemichordates have been found living in a wide variety of depths and habitats. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIUCN Red List Category Not Evaluated [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorImportance Hemichordates are of much research interest because they can help elucidate chordate and deuterostome origins. Also, some hemichordates have the ability to regenerate, and thus studying their development and regeneration may benefit human health.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorOriginal description The first hemichordate described was Ptychodera flava, by Eschscholtz in 1825. [details]
