Synonyms in the area: Phialidium lomae  —Zamponi 1992; Zamponi & Genzano 1994 [medusa].

Remarks: West & Renshaw (1970) suggested that Clytia attenuata  is the hydroid stage of C. lomae  , but this synonymy is not universally accepted and needs to be confirmed or rejected based on further evidence.
