Serpulidae

Fan worms with a clearly divided body living in calcareous tubes which they close by means of an operculum developed from one of their radioles. The thorax has simple or winged capillary setae in the notopodium and uncini in the neuropodium. In the abdomen this distribution is reversed. Often colonial and reef-forming.
