Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Not Sabellidae, instead belongs in Pectinariidae. Sabella tubiformis Pennant, 1777 was a name for a pectinariid tube only, not the worm living inside it. Pennant associated the name Nereis cylindrarea belgica of Pallas with Sabella tubiformis, but earlier he referred to Nereis conchilega as inhabiting Sabella tubiformis. [details]
