From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Described from a dried coiled tube, thus expected to be indeterminable. Previously referred in WoRMS to Hydroides norvegica but without a supporting reference [details]

Grammatical gender gender agreement requires mandatory 'Serpula contorta' (a homonym), which Brown used in his 1844 second addition [details]

Homonymy junior to Serpula contorta Grube, 1850, which is a synonym of Vermiliopsis infundibulum [details]

Type locality Dunbar, Scotland, 56.003, -2.517. Author: "found at Dunbar by General Bingham, and in his Cabinet".  [details]
