Nomenclatural notes
According to Athanasiadis (2016: 142): "Originally spelled elminthoides, ... but as the first letter is aspirated it has to be written helminthoides - h standing for the spiritus asper. However, Art. 60.3, clearly says "The liberty of correcting a name is to be used with reserve, especially if the change affects the first syllable and, above all, the first letter of the name." - (1 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
