From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment although referred to the serpulid Spirorbis retortus by Johnston (1846: 451), the original figure in Walker (1784 pl. 1 fig.10) and the description and remark "detached" by Turton (1819: 158), as well as the latter's "classification" of the taxon with some other foraminifera clearly show this taxon to be a Foraminifera incertae sedis [details]
