Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Although Serpula reversa often has been attributed to the genus Spirorbis, Montagu clearly refers to a variable spiralised tube, while Brown's figure (1844 pl.54 fig.52) shows a slightly irregular spiral, not typical for spirorbids. Johnston (1865: 271) mentions Eupomatus pectinatus as possible synonym, indicative of the attribution to Hydroides norvegicus by McIntosh (1923). [details]
