The nomenclatural history and availability of some genus- and family-group names in the marine "worm-snail' family Siliquariidae are discussed: (1) Tenagodus Guettard, 1770 (type species; Serpula anguina Linne, 1758) has priority over its objective junior synonym Siliquaria Bruguiere, 1789. Tena- godes, Tenagoda and Silicaria are unjustified emendations Siliquaria Schumacher, 1817 (also subsequently emended to Silicaria) is a junior homonym described in the Bivalvia. (2) Siliquarius Montfort. 1810 (type species: Siliquarius anguilus Montfort, 1810) is an available name. (3) Anguinaria Schumacher, 1817, is preoccupied by Anguinaria Lamarck, 1816 (Bryozoa). (4) Montfortia Delia Campana, 1890 (non Montfortia Recluz, 1843), and its replacement name Hemitenagodus Rovereto, 1899, are based on the type species Tenagodus bernardii Morch, 1860. (5) Agathirses Montfort, 1808, is based, by original designation, on the type species Agathirses furcellus Montfort, 1808 (a senior synonym of Siliquaria spinosa Lamarck, 1818). Agathyrsus Herrmannsen, 1846, is an unjustified emendation; "Agathinus," "Agathirsis" and 'Agathirsus ' are incorrect subsequent spellings. (6) The family name Siliquariidae Anton, 1838, has priority over its objective junior synonym Tenagodidae Gill, 1871
