Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Introduced as a subgenus of Serpulus. Type species, by monotypy, Vermetus dentiferus sensu Quoy & Gaimard "non Lam[arck]" [= Serpulus (Tetranemia) dentiferus Mörch, 1859]. In introducing the new subgenus Tetranemia in the genus Serpulus, Mörch deliberately based it on "Vermetus dentiferus Quoy & Gaimard. non Lam." In doing so, under current I.C.Z.N. (1999) Art. 67.13 and 11.10 he created the new nominal species Serpulus (Tetranemia) dentiferus Mörch, 1859. Note that Mörch later described the Quoy & Gaimard species (again) as Thylacodes (Tetranemia) longifilis Mörch, 1862. [details]
