Removal of homonymy between Stryphnus aspera (Carter, 1871) and Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896.
1. Stelletta aspera Carter, 1871: 7 (type locality off the coast of Devon, Celtic Seas). Sollas (1888: 193) synonymised the junior name Stelletta aspera Carter, 1871 with the senior name Ecionema ponderosa Bowerbank, 1866 (= Stryphnus), but the former remains a senior primary homonym of Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896 even though the identity of the latter is considered to be unrecognisable from its original description, and with no surviving material (Thiele 1903: 963), it required a new name (ICZN Art. 57.2).
2. Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896: 528 (type locality Ternate, Indonesia) The biological identity of Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896 may never be resolved, but it remains a junior homonym of Stelletta aspera Carter, 1871 (= Stryphnus ponderosus (Bowerbank, 1866)) (ICZN Art. 57.2), so it required a new name.
3. Summary: Stelletta aspera Carter, 1871 (= Stryphnus ponderosus (Bowerbank, 1866) remains the senior primary homonym of Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896 and the name is maintained (ICZN Art. 57.2). Stelletta aspera Kieschnick, 1896 is deemed unrecognisable but remained a junior primary homonym of Stelletta aspera Carter, 1871 (ICZN Art. 57.2) and in the absence of a synonym required another name, for which Stelletta kieschnicki nom. nov. was proposed, named after Oswald Kieschnick (ICZN Art. 60.3). [details]
