Current status. Invalid.

Remarks. Fraser (1941b) founded Symplectaneidae  for Symplectanea bracteata  , a presumed new genus and species of hydroid described by him from Stephens Passage, Alaska. Symplectanea Fraser, 1941b  was referred to the synonymy of Monocoryne Broch, 1910  by Rees (1957b), a genus included by him in Myriothelidae Hincks, 1868  . Symplectaneidae  thereupon became a junior synonym of Myriothelidae  .

Although the family name Myriothelidae  predates Candelabridae Stechow, 1921a  , the latter name has come into prevailing usage for the taxon because its type genus, Candelabrum de Blainville, 1830, predates its subjective synonym, Myriothela M. Sars, 1850, type genus of Myriothelidae  . In the interests of nomenclatural stability, Schuchert (2006) urged adoption of Candelabridae  over its senior synonym Myriothelidae  , a nomenclatural act permissible under Art. 40.2 of the ICZN provided certain circumstances are met. Under Recommendation 40A of the Code, the currently accepted name, with its author and date, may be cited as Candelabridae Stechow, 1921a  (1868), indicating precedence over Myriothelidae Hincks, 1868  and subsequently published synonyms. In turn, Symplectaneidae  is a junior synonym of both Candelabridae  and Myriothelidae  . When elevated to the rank of family, the subfamily name Monocoryninae Rees, 1956 is also a junior synonym of Candelabridae  .
