1791/1824

Bruguiere (year?) began to write "Tableau encyclopédique ..." in three volumes. The plates seem to be published in 1797/1798. The captions for most plates of the three volumes work were prepared by Bory de Saint-Vincent, but apparently not before 1824, and added to the “Tableau encyclopédique et méthodique, vol. 1” of Bruguière (1791; see note Bruguière, vol. 1, pp. 83–84). In the captions, Bory de Saint-Vincent also referred to the “Histoire naturelle” by Lamarck (1822). Terebellum Brugùière, [1798] as cited by Bouchet WoRMS Terebellum should be Terebellum Bory de Saint-Vincent in Bruguière, 1824.


Biology:

  • Terebellum is an active burrower and lives almost always infaunal. It possesses a sutural canal filled by a filamentous extension of the mantle which informs the gastropod, if the posterior part of the shell is exposed to predators or still buried in the sediment (Savazzi, 1991) ( This has been proved for Oliva, which has a similar filament in a sutural canal: Savazzi, 1991).
