Coryne crassa Fraser, 1914a 

Coryne crassa Fraser, 1914a: 113  , pl. 2, figs. 3Α–C.

Syntypes. BCPM 976-00129-001: USA, Washington, Friday Harbor ; slide. 

BCPM 976-00129-002: USA, Washington, Friday Harbor ; slide. 

Lectotype, by present designation. RBCMAbout RBCM 976-00129-003: USA, Washington, Friday Harbor, one colony (middle colony on slide BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00129-002), 1.5 cm high, in fairly good condition, with gonophores; slide.

Paralectotypes. BCPM 976-00129-001: USA, Washington, Friday Harbor , several fragments, some with gonophores; slide. 

BCPM 976-00129-002: USA, Washington, Friday Harbor , two colony fragments, one to the left and one to the right of the lectotype specimen in the middle, some with gonophores; slide. 

Type locality. USA, Washington: Friday Harbor ( Fraser 1914a). 

Current status. Valid.

Remarks. Although Fraser (1914a) did not designate a name-bearing type in first describing Coryne crassa  , syntypes of it exist, on slides, in the Fraser Hydroid Collection at the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00129-001; BCPMAbout BCPM 976- 00129-002). The best available specimen, on the second of these slides ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00129-002), is selected here as the lectotype and is assigned a new catalogue number ( RBCMAbout RBCM 976-00129-003). Three fragments of colonies exist on the slide, with the lectotype being in the middle.

Earlier, Schuchert (2001b) examined the slide bearing the lectotype and provided a re-description of the species. It was included by him in a group that included C. hincksii Bonnevie, 1898  and C. sagamiensis Hirohito, 1988  . The species has subsequently been reported from China ( Gao 1956; Xu et al. 2014) and from Race Rocks, British Columbia (Brinckmann-Voss 1996).
