Current status. Valid.

Remarks. Fraser (1912c) introduced the family Hebellidae  for two genera, Hebella Allman, 1888  and Scandia Fraser, 1912c  , the latter a new genus established by him in the same paper. The name Hebellidae  had been used in a manuscript being prepared by Charles Cleveland Nutting (1858–1927), who granted Fraser permission to use it in his paper. Fraser (1912c) made the name nomenclaturally available and is therefore credited as its author ( ICZN Art. 50.1). Nutting’s manuscript, intended as a volume on Lafoeidae A. Agassiz, 1865  and Hebellidae  in his series on American hydroids ( Nutting, 1900, 1904, 1915), disappeared after his death and was never published ( Calder 2004).

Marques et al. (2006) presented evidence from a cladistic analysis supporting recognition of Hebellidae  as a distinct family. That conclusion is now widely accepted, although it seems to be polyphyletic as presently classified ( Moura et al. 2011).
