I have a simple Marker added to map like this:
var x = L.marker([50.5, 30.5]); x.addTo(map);

Now how can I hide/remove x? I searched the API docs for a Marker.remove() method, but couldn't find any.

Even more odd - Google is failing me. All results I can get is how to remove the whole layer with all markers, but not only one.

Am I getting something wrong here about markers? Is there a way to remove only one?


Yes, it might sound confusing but internally markers are treated like layers. You have to use removeLayer, it will still only remove a single marker:

var x = L.marker([51.5, -0.09]).addTo(map);
var y = L.marker([51.45, -0.09]).addTo(map);

First, adding a lot of markers:

for (var i=0; i < schools.length;i++){
    var marker = L.marker([schools[i].latLng.lat, schools[i].latLng.lng], {
          icon: L.mapbox.marker.icon({
            'marker-color': '#9c89cc'
        .bindPopup('<div class=\"marker-title\"><h2>'+schools[i].uniName+'</h2></div>')

Then hiding that specific marker (in this case I just hide the first, but you could hide based on any number of variables):
