Nomenclature Hartman (1959) states Polyphragma was erected for Eupomatus uncinatus. However, two further species were included. Quatrefages seems to have applied the name as a label for a grouping at a rank of subgenus or lower within Serpula, defined by a two layered operculum. This is Hydroides, type H. norvegica. In contrast, Quatrefages included Hydroides norvegica in his Vermilia, a lumped grouping of several genera valid today. [details]

Grammatical gender Assumed to be neuter from the Greek noun phragma (a fence or hedge), but as Quatrefages names were agreeing with feminine Serpula (with Polyphragma as a subgroup of it), there is no usage which demonstrates this. [details]
