Editor's comment Name of confused history. Spirorbis carinulata appears to be based only on a checklist entry by Mörch, 1863:462, and is indeterminable as there is no description or location given. Mörch, 1863:435 elsewhere also mentions a "Serpula carinulata" from an unpublished Fabricius Ms (distinct from Fabricius 1780) under Spirorbis quadrangularis Stimpson. An incorrect interpretation of this appears to be the source of the misleading records of the Hartman Catalogue. This record, Spirorbis carinulata of Aphia 340023, was corrected July 2015 to remedy several errors. First it attributed Spirorbis carinulata authorship to Fabricius, 1780, instead of correctly to Mörch, 1863. Spirorbis genus was not published until 1800. Also the name was synonymised in the record to Spirorbis quadrangularis Lamarck, 1838, which is similarly impossible because it would be senior to an 1838 name. In any case there is no such taxon in Lamarck - see instead S. quadrangularis Stimpson, 1854. [details]

Taxonomy Indeterminable. Mörch also included the published name Serpula contortuplicata, a Linnaeus species, with the unpublished 'Serpula carinulata,' under his text on Spirorbis quadrangularis Stimpson, 1854 var fabricii. That junior synonymy is obviously not possible. [details]

Type locality Material assumed to be from Greenland if the record is ultimately based on the unpublished Fabricius name 'Serpula carinulata' mentioned by Mörch. [details]
