Description Berkeley description in full: "For the other, Serpula Filograna, I beg leave to propose a new genus which will be characterised by the nature of its opercula and number of branchiae, and may be called Filograna; in which case, Turton's specific name implexa will be very appropriate.
Shell very slender, filiform, gregarious. Branchiae 8, filiform, of which two bear an infundibuliform obliquely truncate operculum. Mantle rectangular. Fascicles of bristles 7 on each side." [details]
Editor's comment The genus Filograna has been attributed to Oken (1815) by e.g. Hartman (1959). However, Oken used filograna as species name in the combination Clymene filograna, S.(erpula) filograna; the species name was elevated to generic rank by Berkeley (1835). [details]
Nomenclature Hartman catalogue (p.576) picked up the name Filograna as attributed to Oken from McIntosh's (1923) monograph on Serpulidae (p.338). As usual McIntosh compiled a remarkable list of early, sometimes pre-linnaean usages, (including 1697 for a synonym of Filograna implexa, and a Serpula filograna usage by Linnaeus, 1766). He accurately reports Oken's usage of 'Clymene [not the maldanid genus] filograna'. Thus, even on McIntosh's own reporting he is wrong in attributing the authority to Oken, and he also lists (wrongly) Oken's spelling as 'Filigrana' although himself using 'Filograna'. Even if McIntosh was correct and Oken had used the genus name (most works agree he didn't), he could not be the authority as his 1815 work is not available for nomenclature under ICZN Opinion 417.
