|Action: changed name from "Spirorbis sp." to "Spirorbinae sp.
| ||"The genus Spirorbis has been extensively split into other genera. Identification relies on tube structure, where the eggs are brooded, operculum shape, setae, and other characters not seen in this photo. Any name more specific than spirorbinae cannot be confirmed without specimens."|
