Lafoea adnata Fraser, 1925: 170  , figs. 5Α, B.

Filellum adnatum  .—Marques et al., 2006: 46.

Lectotype. BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00324-001: USA, California, Farallon Islands, 60–64 m, on algae, without gonophores, labelled "cotype"; 60% IPAAbout IPA (Arai 1977; Marques et al. 2011).

Paralectotypes. BCPM 976-00324-002: USA, California, Farallon Islands , 60–64 m, one colony, on algae; slide. 

CAS-IZ 21802.00: USA, California, Farallon Islands , 33–35 fm (60–64 m), on algae, bryozoans and other hydroids, labelled " syntype "; 10% formalin. 

Type locality. USA, California: near Farallon Islands , 60–64 m ( Fraser 1925). 

Current status. Species inquirenda.

Remarks. Marques et al. (2006) re-examined part of the syntype material of Lafoea adnata  ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-

00324-001), and transferred it to Filellum Hincks, 1868  , as F. adnatum  . Later, Marques et al. (2011) designated the same hydroid as the lectotype and provided a re-description and illustrations of it. The remaining syntypes ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00324-002, CAS-IZ 21802.00) thereby became paralectotypes.

Fraser’s (1925) specimens of this species, from the Farallon Islands, California, were sterile. In the absence of coppiniae, Marques et al. (2011) considered F. adnatum  to be a species inquirenda. The hydroid was included by Cairns et al. (2002) under the binomen L. adnata  , and it is currently listed under the same name in WoRMS.
