Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus The type species, Serpula goreensis Gmelin, 1791 (= "Le Dofan" of Adanson 1757: 164, pl. 11, fig. 3) seems no longer to be discoverable (Fischer-Piette 1942: 264). As the type figure does not permit specific determination, the generic name is at present unusable. [details]
