Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment WoRMS until January 2016 was reporting this entry as Sabella penicillus Linnaeus, 1767, thus incorrectly as a new species. This was an error, also present in the Hartman catalogue entry p.563. The name clearly arises as a simple recombination from Serpula penicillus. Linnaeus created Sabella genus in 1767. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Serpula penicillus Linnaeus, 1758 (10th ed), here recombined as Sabella penicillus as transferred by Linnaeus 1767 (12th ed) is obviously senior (when treated as synonymous) to Sabella spallanzanii, the name treated as valid (Knight-Jones & Perkins, 1998). Those authors analyse the priority and nomenclature issues. [details]
