Sipunculidae, sipunculids [English]
Cutler (1994:24) notes Sipunculidae "has historically been attributed to Baird (1868)," but attributes authorship to Rafinesque (1814:32). That work uses "Famille Sipuncula" for "G[enus]. Syrinx" (coined in Bohadsch 1761, a suppressed work) but does not mention the genus Sipunculus Linnaeus 1766. Should there be any issue with availability of the family name Sipunculidae from Rafinesque (1814), other works prior to 1868 would make the name available, e.g., Forbes (1841:243-251)

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
