Removal of homonymy between Mycale (Mycale) arctica (Fristedt, 1887) and Mycale (Rhaphidotheca) arctica (Hentschel, 1929).
1. Esperia lingua var. arctica Fristedt, 1887: 449 (type locality Bering Island, off Kamchatka). Originally described as Esperia lingua var. arctica Fristedt, 1887, it was elevated to a species level taxon Mycale arctica (Fristedt, 1887) by Burton (1934b: 8) and subsequently recorded as Mycale adhaerens var. arctica by Koltun (1959: 64). It is the senior secondary homonym of Mycale arctica (Hentschel, 1929) (ICZN 57.3 & 57.4).
2. Rhaphidotheca arctica Hentschel, 1929: 873 (type locality Spitzbergen (Svalbard), Arctic Norway). Originally described as Rhaphidotheca arctica Hentschel, 1929, with the genus Rhaphidotheca Saville Kent, 1870 now accepted as a subgenus of Mycale Gray, 1867, making Mycale (Rhaphidotheca) arctica (Hentschel, 1912) a junior secondary homonym of M. arctica (Fristedt, 1887) and requiring a new name (ICZN Art. 59.1).
3. Summary: Mycale (Mycale) arctica (Fristedt, 1887) is to be maintained as the senior secondary homonym (ICZN 57.3). Mycale (Rhaphidotheca) arctica (Hentschel, 1929) is a junior secondary homonym of M. (Mycale) arctica (Fristedt, 1887) and requires a new name, for which we propose Mycale (Rhaphidotheca) ernsti nom. nov., named after Ernst Hentschel (ICZN Art. 59.1 & 60.3). [details]
