taxonomic rank: species

Catalog entries: Collozoum vermiforme

Original description: Central capsules cylindrical, much elongated, five to ten times (sometimes twenty to fifty times) as long as broad, snake-shaped or worm-shaped, very irregularly curved and contorted. Numerous oil-globules constantly present, forming in the axis of every capsule a double series of alternating rose-coloured globules. (This species is nearly allied to the preceding; but its capsules are thicker and shorter, and the oil-vesicles in them are arranged not in a single, but in a double row.)
Remarks on original description: Haeckel listed Collozoum veriforme under the subgeneric name Collophidium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.

The \preceding\" species to which Haeckel refers here is Collozoum serpentinum Haeckel, 1887a."[comment from RadWorld database]
