Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Lophophaena echinicephala under the subgeneric name Lophophaenula , but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.

In the description the \preceding species\" refers to Lophophaena liothorax in Haeckel, 1887a."[comment from RadWorld database]
