De Silva, P. H. D. H.; Knight-Jones, E. W. (1962). Spirorbis corallinae n. sp. and some other Spirorbinae (Serpulidae) common on British shores. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom. 42(3): 601-608.
Summary. Spirorbis corallinae sp.nov. is very similar to S. borealis but can be distinguished by its orange colour, small size, bifid opercular talon and particularly by the fact that the larvae choose to settle on Corallina officinalis rather than on Fucus serratus. Other species dealt with, in a key to identification and notes on distribution, are S. granulatus, S. malardi, S. pagenstecheri, S. rupestris, S. spirillum and S. tridentatus.
