Taxonomy In Blumenbach (1803) there is a figure of a mass of short pieces of worm tube (Plate 2, fig. 8.) and a Latin text on 'Serpulites coaceruatus',a common alternative type-set for coacervatus. Serpulites is probably unavailable except for homonymy (Art. 20 on 'ites' suffixes) and it appears to be the senior homonym to Serpulites Murchison, 1939. If available then it has been placed as a synonym of Serpula. Some relevant references are given in Zhu et al, 2000. [details]
