Nomenclature De Laubenfels (1936: 196) learned from Dendy & Row (1913) that Scypha Gray, 1821 could be a synonym with priority over Sycon Risso, 1826. The latter authors argued that this should be kept a 'nomen oblitum' and that the much wider used Sycon should stay in use. Instead of following this advice, De Laubenfels proceeded to assign Spongia coronata Ellis & Solander, 1786 (=Sycon ciliatum) as the type species of Scypha as the first mentioned by Gray, and proposed to refer Sycon to its junior synonymy. Unfortunately, Burton (1963) followed De Laubenfels proposal and promoted the use of Scypha for species of Sycon with some succes over a short period of years. The result of these unfortunate interventions of De Laubenfels and Burton is that suppression of the name Scypha under Art. 23.9.1 is no longer possible. The Commission of the ICZN must be approached to have the name Scypha suppressed in favor of Sycon[details]
