Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Synonymies of "spallanzanii" usages are very complex and resolving them in WoRMS is not yet complete. Please see Knight-Jones and Perkins (1998) for full background. Those authors designated a single neotype for the four names Tubularia spallanzanii Gmelin, Serpula penicillus Linnaeus, Teredo melitensis Bergius, and Amphitrite ventilabrum Gmelin, which they placed junior to Sabella spallanzanii to stabilise the well-known name. An application to ICZN to confirm this was proposed, but did not occur. [details]
