Habitat. Intertidal to subtidal (18 m, Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove 2003). On corals, sponges and on anthropogenic substrates in marinas (from Pichilingue, La Paz and Puerto Escondido, Baja California Sur). Also on dead corals, in rock pools and on spines of sea urchin Eucidaris thouarsii  ( Bastida-Zavala 1995; Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove 2003; Bastida-Zavala 2008). Fouling species.

Distribution. Tropical Eastern Pacific. Baja California and Sonora ( México) to Panamá (Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove 2003).

Remarks. Hydroides similis  is a very common serpulid in the Gulf coast of Baja California Peninsula. The southern records from Socorro Island, Pacific of Costa Rica and Panamá (Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove 2003) are possibly incidental introductions. It is a fouling species with potential to be introduced in other tropical regions by vessels.
