Removal of homonymy between Halichondria reticulata Lieberkühn, 1859, Halichondria reticulata (Bowerbank, 1866) (as Hymeniacidon), Halichondria reticulata Baer, 1906, and Halichondria reticulata Brøndsted, 1924.
1. Halichondria reticulata Lieberkühn, 1859: 519 (type locality Helgoland, Germany). Previously thought to be from the Adriatic, but the description makes it clear he described the most common Helgoland species, which we here confirm as Halichondria (Halichondria) panicea (Pallas, 1766: 388). Recognized as senior synonym by De Laubenfels (1936:133) of several homonyms (cf. below).
2. Hymeniacidon reticulatus Bowerbank, 1866: 159 (type locality Shetland, United Kingdom). Topsent (1894: 23) transferred Bowerbank’s species to Halichondria reticulata (Bowerbank) (apparently being unaware of Lieberkühn’s senior homonym). De Laubenfels (1936: 133) detected the homonymy and proposed Halichondria topsenti as a new name. This was accepted as Halichondria (Halichondria) panicea (Pallas, 1766) by Erpenbeck & Van Soest (2002: 802).
3. Halichondria reticulata Baer, 1906: 12 (type locality Zanzibar, East Africa). Baer’s species was also reported subsequently by Dendy (1916: 113) from Western India, but in a follow up study on sponges from the Western Indian Ocean, he realized Baer’s name was preoccupied by Lieberkühn’s combination. Thus, Dendy (1922: 41) proposed the replacement name Halichondria tenuiramosa to remove the primary homonymy. Later, De Laubenfels (1936: 133), having detected the Lieberkühn-Baer homonymy but apparently unaware of Dendy’s new name, proposed an additional new name, Halichondria baeri. The latter is an objective junior synonym of H. tenuiramosa Dendy, 1922.
4. Halichondria reticulata Brøndsted, 1924: 450 (type locality Wellington, New Zealand). Brøndsted erected yet another different Halichondria reticulata, which was duly discovered by De Laubenfels (1936: 133). Remarkably, he did not propose a new name, but this was finally done by Bergquist (1961: 186), who erected Halichondria knowltoni for Brøndsted’s species.
5. Summary: Halichondria (Halichondria) panicea (Pallas, 1766) were proposed as the senior synonym for Halichondria reticulata Lieberkühn, 1859, Halichondria reticulata (Bowerbank, 1864) and Halichondria topsenti De Laubenfels, 1936. All homonymy has been removed. Halichondria (Halichondria) tenuiramosa Dendy, 1922 is the replacement name for Halichondria reticulata Baer, 1906 and is the senior synonym of Halichondria baeri De Laubenfels, 1936. The homomymy has been removed. Halichondria (Halichondria) knowltoni Bergquist, 1961 is the replacement name for Halichondria reticulata Brøndsted, 1924. The homonymy has been removed. [details]
