Homonymy Senior homonym to Owenia Prosch, 1849 in Cephalopoda, Cranchiidae (squid). Owenia Prosch has been replaced by Teuthowenia Chun, 1910. There is also Owenia Gray 1855 in Aves. All three genera are assumed named to recognize Sir Richard Owen of the British Museum. There is also a junior plant kingdom genus Owenia Mueller, F.J.H (1857), which is a genus of trees in the family Meliaceae, and endemic to Australia. [details]
