Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The traditional “Vermiliopsis infundibulum Philippi” from the Mediterranean as for instance in Fauvel (1927: 362–363) and Zibrowius (1968a: 121–124) was found to contain two different species “Vermiliopsis infundibulum Philippi s.str.” and Vermiliopsis striaticeps Grube, 1862 (Zibrowius 1973b: 44–45, ten Hove 1975: 57–58; Bianchi 1981: 74–75). All records from earlier than 1973 should be checked. [details]

From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority As early as 1776 a summary description of Serpula infundibulum was given by Martini (1776: 359, pl. 12 fig. 1). “Serpula Infundibulum. Tubulus vermicularis testaceus, in formâ infundibulorum triplici gyro convolutus”. From his description and figure it is impossible to decide whether this tube belongs to the genus Serpula s.str., Vermiliopsis s.str., or Dasynema. His material “a nice group of Eastindian seatophus [= tuff] obtained in an auction” apparently has been lost, it was not found in the musea in Copenhagen and Berlin where some of Martini's mollusks still are. The species was subsequently mentioned by various authors (e.g., Gmelin 1791, Lamarck 1818, Philippi 1844, Chenu 1842–55), generally miscited as S. infundibulum Gm., although Gmelin explicitly refers to Martini in his 13th edition of Systema Naturae. Mörch (1863: 389) apparently thought that Philippi's (1844: 193) “Vermilia infundibulum Gm.” was not the same as Martini's species, since he proposed a new name Vermilia multivaricosa Mörch for Philippi's and other Mediterranean records of this nominal species. Unfortunately Mörch does not give reasons why, and except for a listing as extant species (p. 453) Serpula infundibulum Martini is not discussed further by him, though he reidentified some other “Serpula infundibulum” as vermetid or probable Hydroides species. Although Vermilia multivaricosa has been used in the literature about 20 times, the great majority (150 records) of the authors still used the name Vermiliopsis infundibulum, generally attributed to Philippi (1844), probably to indicate that they wanted to confine the name to Mediterranean-Lusitanian material. Saint-Joseph (1894: 262) erected a new genus Vermiliopsis to contain a number of Vermilia species, the first he included was Vermilia multivaricosa Mörch, 1863. This species was subsequently formally designated as type species of the genus Vermiliopsis by Bush (1905: 223), in line with Saint-Joseph's intentions. Apparently both the genus Vermiliopsis and the species infundibulum are ill-defined, and designation of a neotype is unavoidable. The binomen Vermiliopsis infundibulum generally has been used for Mediterranean-Lusitanian forms, which has been followed here by attributing its authorship to Philippi (see ten Hove & Kupriyanova 2009: 100). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The traditional “Vermiliopsis infundibulum Philippi” from the Mediterranean as for instance in Fauvel (1927: 362–363) and Zibrowius (1968a: 121–124) was found to contain two different species “Vermiliopsis infundibulum Philippi s.str.” and Vermiliopsis striaticeps Grube, 1862 (Zibrowius 1973b: 44–45, ten Hove 1975: 57–58; Bianchi 1981: 74–75). All records from earlier than 1973 should be checked. [details]
