Etymology Grube p.163 states he named the genus because the whole figure of the gill to some extent recalls the basket [weil die ganze Gestalt der Kieme eiuigermassen an einen zierlichen Korb erinnert.] This is why the spelling should have been 'Canephorus' not 'Corephorus' as a compound Latinised word meaning basket-bearing (One Greek term for basket is 'kanistron', Latin 'canistrum'). [details]

Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Grube (1846: 161): "Corpus Terebellis simile; os anticum, lamina cirros longos, tortiles gerente circumdatum: branchia una, lobata, patelliformis, lamellosa, dorso corporis insidens; pars corporis anterior setis et rostratis et capillaribus armata, posterior solis pinnulis uncinos gerentibus munita." [details]

Etymology Grube p.163 states he named the genus because the whole figure of the gill to some extent recalls the basket [weil die ganze Gestalt der Kieme eiuigermassen an einen zierlichen Korb erinnert.] This is why the spelling should have been 'Canephorus' not 'Corephorus' as a compound Latinised word meaning basket-bearing (One Greek term for basket is 'kanistron', Latin 'canistrum'). [details]

Spelling Grube used the spelling Corephorus in the title and in the text, but in a later paper he used 'Canephorus' (placed as a synonym of Terebellides, and in the errata on p378 for the 1846 volume 'Corephorus' appears to be corrected to 'Canephorus' . This is because it was a reference to bearing gills of basket-like appearance. One Greek term for basket is 'kanistron', Latin 'canistrum'. [details]
