Homonymy It would appear that this well-used name is preoccupied by Calyx Bigsby, 1868 (fossil Echinodemata). However, Van Soest et al. (2020) pointed out that Bigsby (1868: 18) is assumed to have misspelled the genus name Calix Rouault, 1851: 368, as he referred to Rouault and mentioned the species sedgwickii described by Rouault as the type species (by monotypy). The name is thus an inadvertent subsequent spelling and as such is not available and does not enter in homonymy (ICZN Art. 33.3).
