Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Although Haeckel does not explicitly assign Acrobotrys aquaria to the subgenus Acrobotrella, it is clear from the discussion of the genus Acrobotrys in this reference that Haeckel intends this assignment.[comment from RadWorld database]
