Lectotype, by present designation. RBCM 976-00509-002: Canada, British Columbia, Queen Charlotte Islands (= Haida Gwaii), Houston Stewart Channel , off Rose Harbour , 30 fm (55 m), June-early September 1935, one colony fragment (on the left side of the slide), 1.8 mm long, in good condition, without gonophores; slide. 

Paralectotypes. BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00509-001: Canada, British Columbia, Queen Charlotte Islands (=Haida Gwaii), Houston Stewart Channel, off Rose Harbour, 30 fm (55 m), June-early September 1935, several fragments mounted with lectotype, in good condition, without gonophores; slide.

Type locality. Canada, British Columbia: Queen Charlotte Islands (= Haida Gwaii), Houston Stewart Channel , off Rose Harbour , 30 fm (55 m) ( Fraser 1936a). 

Current status. Valid, as Hydrodendron corrugatum ( Fraser, 1936a)  .

Remarks. ( Fraser 1936a) established Ophiodes corrugata  based on sterile material. Several colonies appear to have been available to him in describing the species (see Fraser 1936a, 504; 1947a: 281). Specimens, taken to be syntypes, exist on a slide at the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00509-001). No other types are known to exist. As lectotype, we have selected a 1.8 mm-long specimen with several hydrothecae and nematothecae. That colony ( RBCMAbout RBCM 976- 00509-002) is on the left side of the slide, with all others mounted with it constituting paralectotypes ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976- 00509-001).

The species was reported again, but not described, from San Miguel Island, California ( Fraser 1948). Rees & Vervoort (1987), Cairns et al. (2002), and WoRMS refer to this hydroid under the binomen Hydrodendron corrugatum  .
