Editor's comment The diagnosis of Placostegus porosus in Mörch (1863: 418) is rather reminiscent of Spirobranchus cf. polytrema. Plate 2 fig.8 of Sowerby & Sowerby's Serpula ornata depicts an attached tube with medial keel flanked by two rows of pits, rather reminiscent of Spirobranchus polytrema! S. ornata was attributed to Placostegus by Mörch (1863: 420) [details]

Editor's comment records from the Indo-West Pacific probably are a complex of species by themselves [details]

Spelling See etymology remarks for Vermilia polytrema. Vermilia is feminine, Spirobranchus is masculine. Trema by itself is a neuter Greek noun, and there is some uncertainty that 'polytremus' would be the correct masculine form as an adjective. As S. polytrema is so widely used, it seems best at the moment not to force a mandatory gender suffix change in WoRMS to 'polytremus' for apparent agreement with the masculine genus, until/unless adopted in print [details]

Taxonomy Spirobanchus polytrema sensu auct. most probably is a complex of species. Records under this name from outside the Mediterranean/Atlantic probably should be attributed to other species; see discussion in Pillai (2009c) as well. [details]
