Nomenclature The name Eulimella polita (A.E. Verrill, 1872) [for a species from the NW Atlantic] is a secondary junior homonym of Eulimella polita de Folin, 1870 [for a species from West Africa], and thus an invalid name. In such a case, the Code of Nomenclature requires that the younger name Eulimella polita (A.E. Verrill, 1872) be replaced by a substitute name. However, there is no substitute name available. Until such a substitute name is established, WoRMS lists the two species as distinct, although one is designated by an invalid name. [details]
