Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment based on Adanson, this possibly might be a Vermetid (in Keen 1961); however, Gmelin's description refers to a tube "cast in clay . . ., with ventral apex" [ex luteo susea . . ., apice centrale], which is unlike a Vermetid or Serpulid, but rather reminiscent of a foraminifera  [details]
