Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Specific name apparently forgotten for more than a century, and afterwards used (as Hydroides hexagona) in experimental literature mainly, at first not clear which taxon was involved. Synonymised with the better known name of H. dianthus by e.g. Rioja and by Zibrowius, however, not following the ICZN, though following the intent of the Code, stabilisation of names. [details]
