scientific name

Aglaophenoides Fraser, 1943a
status

 

Genus Aglaophenoides Fraser, 1943a 

Aglaophenia Lamouroux, 1812: 184  .

Aglaophenoides Fraser, 1943a: 82  .

Type species. Aglaophenia mammillata Nutting, 1900  , by monotypy.

Current status. Invalid.

Remarks. Fraser (1943a) established Aglaophenoides  as a new genus for Aglaophenia mammillata Nutting, 1900  after discovering unusual gonophores in its hydroid. Rather than being protected by a corbula formed in place of a hydrocladium, each gonophore arose from the cavity of a hydrotheca. The trophosome of A. mammillata  is otherwise indistinguishable morphologically from Aglaophenia latecarinata Allman, 1877  , and the two forms exist in the same geographic area. Calder (1997) concluded that the unusual gonophores upon which Aglaophenoides  is based were abnormalities, and returned its type species to Aglaophenia Lamouroux, 1812  . That conclusion is upheld in WoRMS.
