Type locality The type locality is not Iceland (as believed by Johansson (1927:93), Hartman (1959:476), and Kirtley (1994:76)), but near Helgoland, Germany after a specimen described in Frey & Leuckart (1847:15) which they had earlier placed as Hermella ostrearia (Cuvier). Leuckart (1849:178-179) introduced Hermella spinulosa in a long footnote, otherwise unrelated to the Icelandic polychaeta topic of his article. Kirtley pointed this out in a corrigenda distributed in 1995.

Nomenclature Strictly the several Sabellaria spinulosa subspecies were created as varieties of 'spinulosa' by their various authors. However, the first WoRMS editors chose to make sole entries at the level of subspecies as varieties are no longer valid in zoological nomenclature since 1961 and (Art.45.6.4.) a variety name is treated as subspecific if first published before 1961. [details]

Authority Contrary to Hartman catalogue and many others, including the monograph of Kirtley (1994), Sabellaria spinulosa (Leuckart) is a subsequent combination as the species was first described in genus Hermella (q.v.) [details]

Nomenclature Strictly the several Sabellaria spinulosa subspecies were created as varieties of 'spinulosa' by their various authors. However, the first WoRMS editors chose to make sole entries at the level of subspecies as varieties are no longer valid in zoological nomenclature since 1961 and (Art.45.6.4.) a variety name is treated as subspecific if first published before 1961. [details]
