Hydroids are an important component of marine epiphytic communities worldwide. We compiled data from several faunistic, taxonomic, and ecologic studies to prepare a list of 200 morphotypes (46 Anthoathecates and 154 Leptothecates) and their respective phytal substrata. The goal of this checklist is to support future biogeographical and ecological inferences concerning this important biota.
