Distribution Knight-Jones & Perkins (1998) placed Subella gracillima Kinberg, 1867 from Rio de Janeiro, and four names in Spirographis erected by Hansen, one from Rio, and a further species, Spirographis braziliensis Treadwell, 1932, all as synonyms of Sabella spallanzanii. It is not clear if they examined the types. So, apparently Sabella spallanzanii did occur around Rio de Janeiro in the mid 19th C. There are no modern reports, which seems unusual with such a conspicuous worm unless the population has died out. [details]

Synonymy It is obvious strict priority is not being observed here. Synonymies of "spallanzanii" usages are very complex and resolving them in WoRMS is not yet complete. Please see Knight-Jones and Perkins (1998) for full background. Those authors designated a single neotype for the four names Tubularia spallanzanii Gmelin, Serpula penicillus Linnaeus, Teredo melitensis Bergius, and Amphitrite ventilabrum Gmelin, the last three of which they placed junior to Tubularia spallanzanii [now Sabella spallanzanii] to stabilise the well-known name. An application to ICZN to confirm this was proposed, but did not occur. They intended to "to ask the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature to use its plenary powers to stabilize the current specific name of the well-known species Sabella spallanzanii by suppressing Serpula penicillus, Teredo melitensis Bergius, and Amphitrite ventilabrum Gmelin, its early synonyms". Strictly Sabella penicillus should remain the valid name. If 'penicillus', as Latin diminutive for painter's brush, is treated as a noun in apposition, its suffix is not changed. [details]
