From editor or global species database
Classification Pillai (1970) raised Spirorbinae from the original subfamily rank to separate family rank, but this usage in the literature has declined due to solid evidence the group is part of Serpulidae (see ten Hove & Kupriyanova, 2009). Former subfamilies of Spirorbidae are now treated as tribes (Rzhavsky et al. 2013).

Some principal contributors to the genera and subgenera structure in spirorbins (or explainers of the structure) are Caullery & Mesnil (1897), Bush (1904), Pixell (1912), Chamberlin (1919), Pillai (1970), Knight-Jones & Knight-Jones (1977), etc [GBR in process of adding more of these sources] [details]
