Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 47) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Raspailia (Raspailia) ramosa (Montagu, 1814), Spongia ramosa† Mantell, 1822, Callyspongia (Callyspongia) ramosa (Gray, 1843) and Callyspongia (Callyspongia) ramosa (Von Lendenfeld, 1887).
1. Spongia ramosa Montagu, 1814: 84 (type locality Weymouth, United Kingdom). Montagu’s (1814) species was reassigned to Halichondria Fleming, 1828: 522 by Johnston (1842: 99), to Dictyocylindrus Bowerbank, 1864 by Bowerbank (1864: 186), to Raspailia Nardo, 1833: 522 by Topsent (1891: 127), and finally to Raspailia (Raspailia) sensu Hooper (1991: 1200) by Van Soest et al. (2000: CD-ROM & online). It is a common species in NW Europe (cf. Ackers et al. 1992: 78). It is the senior primary homonym of a number of other ramosa species (ICZN Art. 57.2).
2. Spongia ramosa† Mantell, 1822: 162 (type locality Cretaceous strata near Lewes and Brighton, Southeast United Kingdom). This fossil has the same original name as Montagu’s species and thus as a junior primary homonym possibly needs a new name, but if necessary it may be suppressed as nomen oblitum (cf. below). It is not clear how this fossil relates to modern groups, it is very likely not a member of Spongia s.s., but no alternative genus name can be suggested. In the absence of further actions, a replacement name is proposed (ICZN Art. 60.3).
3. Spongia ramosa Gray, 1843: 295 (type locality New Zealand). Callyspongia (Callyspongia) ramosa (Gray, 1843) is a junior homonym of Montagu’s combination. It is a wellknown species (cf. Bergquist & Warne 1980: 30-31) with dozens of junior synonyms assigned to it (Burton 1934: 603; Hooper & Wiedenmayer 1994: 96-100). The eldest synonym is Cladochalina nuda Ridley, 1884 (from Torres Strait, Northeast Australia, depth 14 m), reassigned to Callyspongia (Callyspongia) nuda (Ridley, 1884) comb. nov. This was proposed to replace Callyspongia ramosa Gray.
4. Chalinissa ramosa Von Lendenfeld, 1887: 774 (type locality Port Jackson, Australia). This species was reassigned to Cladochalina communis (Von Lendenfeld, 1887: 772) by Burton (1927: 504), and subsequently to Callyspongia (Callyspongia) serpentina (Lamarck, 1814: 452) by Hooper & Wiedenmayer (1994: 102). The latter assignment invokes ICZN Art. 59.1 and thus it becomes a junior secondary homonym of Callyspongia ramosa Gray, 1843.
5. Summary: Raspailia (Raspailia) ramosa (Montagu, 1814) is to be maintained as the senior primary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.2). Spongia ramosa Mantell, 1822 is a junior primary homonym without an obvious synonym and needed to be replaced (ICZN Art. 60.3). Spongia mantelli nom. nov. was proposed, named after G. Mantell, to remove the homonymy. Callyspongia (Callyspongia) ramosa (Gray, 1843) is a junior primary homonym with many synonyms, the eldest of which is Cladochalina nuda Ridley, 1884. To remove the homonymy it was proposed to replace Callyspongia ramosa Gray with Callyspongia (Callyspongia) nuda comb. nov. (ICZN Art. 23.3.5 & 60.2). Callyspongia (Callyspongia) ramosa (Von Lendenfeld, 1887 as Chalinissa) is a junior secondary homonym under the conditions of ICZN Art. 59.1 (both ramosa Gray, 1843 and ramosa Von Lendenfeld, 1887 belong to Callyspongia), which meant that it had to be renamed despite its junior synonymy with Callyspongia (Callyspongia) serpentina. Callyspongia (Callyspongia) robertvonlendenfeldi nom. nov. was proposed, named after Robert Von Lendenfeld, which is a junior synonym of Callyspongia (Callyspongia) serpentina[details]
