Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 54-55) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Haliclona spinosella (Thiele, 1905) and Haliclona spinosella (Row, 1911).
1. Reniera spinosella Thiele, 1905: 459 (type locality Punta Arenas, Chile). The genus Reniera Schmidt, 1862: 72 is a junior synonym of Haliclona Grant, 1841, employed as a subgenus Haliclona (Reniera), but the species is accepted as Haliclona spinosella, without subgenus assignment. The species was erroneously reported to occur in the Mediterranean by Streftaris et al. (2005), presumably because of Row’s (1911) homonym, which concerns a clearly different species. No reliable reports by sponge biologists are known to support a Mediterranean occurrence of this species.
2. Reniera spinosella Row, 1911: 317 (type locality Suez, Northern Red Sea). As remarked above, the genus Reniera Schmidt, 1862 is a junior synonym of Haliclona Grant, 1841, employed as a subgenus Haliclona (Reniera), but the species is accepted as Haliclona spinosella, without subgenus assignment. Nevertheless there are many small differences with Thiele’s spinosella, in the shape, the skeletal structure and the shape and size of the oxeas. On that basis the two spinosella species are clearly different. The present species is a junior primary homonym and needs to be replaced (ICZN Art. 57.2).
93.3. Summary of Proposed Actions.
Haliclona spinosella (Thiele, 1905) as senior primary homonym is to be maintained (ICZN Art. 57.2).
Haliclona spinosella (Row, 1911) is a junior primary homonym and needed to be renamed (ICZN Art. 60.1). No obvious synonyms are currently known, thus Haliclona rowi nom.nov. was proposed, named after Harold Row, to remove the homonymy. [details]
