From editor or global species database
Editor's comment the name incurvata has a confusing history, and has been attributed to Fleming, Turton, Montagu or Walker. Mentioned by Mörch (1863: 463) as Spirorbis incurvatus (Walker, 1784) = Caecum (Vermiculum) incurvatum Mtg [Montagu, 1803, as Vermiculum], it was attributed by Jeffreys (1867: 79) to Caecum glabrum. Walker http://ia331436.us.archive.org/2/items/collectionofminu00walk/collectionofminu00walk.pdf is not binomial, and not available as author. The earliest binomial author known is Turton, 1802. Walker's figure 11 is clearly a spirorbid, not a Caecum! Also mentioned as Serpula incurvata [details]
