Current status. Valid.

Remarks. Fraser’s (1940a) “ type ” of Egmundella fasciculata  is currently listed as a holotype in the online database of the NMNHAbout NMNH ( USNMAbout USNM 43436). However, several colonies or colony fragments were present in the collection. The best of these specimens has been designated as the lectotype ( USNMAbout USNM 43436). All others in the series are paralectotypes ( USNMAbout USNM 1458911). Also present in this collection, together with the paralectotypes, are specimens of a species of campanularioid. Other material from the same collection, held in the Fraser Hydroid Collection at the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00289-001), is labelled a “co-type” of E. fasciculata  . Now in poor condition, it likewise constitutes a paralectotype.

Egmundella fasciculata  is listed as valid by Cairns et al. (2002) and WoRMS. The species is known only from the original description, and only from its trophosome.
