Boone et al. (2001) assigned this genus to the family "Serpulinaceae".Publication:

For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Brachyspira Hovind-Hougen et al. 1983.Publication:

This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Seipulina"; "Selpulina"; "Sepulina"; "Serpwlina".
Taxonomists who have recently focused on this group are the corresponding authors of Stanton et al. (1998). Editors in search of reviewers are advised to consider additional criteria such as whether a taxon is covered by one of the ICSP subcommittees.
Serpulina is the correct name instead if this genus is regarded as a separate genus (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another genus whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: ATCC: 7; CIP: 4; CCUG: 2; DSM: 1; NCTC: 1.
Replacement of the illegitimate original name, Serpula Stanton et al. 1991, which is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Serpula [Rule 51b(4)]. So, Stanton 1992 proposes that the bacterial genus name Serpula be replaced by Serpulina gen. nov. In violation of the Rule 34a, on the "Notification that new names and new combinations have appeared in the IJSB", Serpulina is cited as Serpulina nom. nov.Publication:
