Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment The diagnosis of Placostegus porosus in Mörch (1863: 418) is rather reminiscent of Spirobranchus cf. polytrema. Plate 2 fig.8 of Sowerby & Sowerby's Serpula ornata depicts an attached tube with medial keel flanked by two rows of pits, rather reminiscent of Spirobranchus polytrema! S. ornata was attributed to Placostegus by Mörch (1863: 420) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment records from the Indo-West Pacific probably are a complex of species by themselves [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Spirobanchus polytrema sensu auct. most probably is a complex of species. Records under this name from outside the Mediterranean/Atlantic probably should be attributed to other species; see discussion in Pillai (2009c) as well. [details]
