Removal of homonymy between Myxilla...  
Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 47-48) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Myxilla (Myxilla) ramosa Kieschnick, 1896 and Myxilla (Ectyomyxilla) ramosa (Bergquist & Fromont, 1988).
1. Myxilla ramosa Kieschnick, 1896: 533 (type locality Ternate, Indonesia). From the description there is no guarantee this is a true Myxilla (Myxilla) Schmidt, 1862: 71, and Thiele’s (1903) revision of Kieschnick’s material did not retrieve the type material (which is apparently lost). However, in the absence of alternative assignments the name remains a senior secondary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.3).
2. Ectyomyxilla ramosa Bergquist & Fromont, 1988: 87 (type locality Poor Knights Islands, New Zealand). The genus Ectyomyxilla Hentschel, 1914: 102 was reassigned to the synonymy of Myxilla by Desqueyroux-Faúndez & Van Soest (1996: 29), but remains employed as Myxilla (Ectyomyxilla). Van Soest (2002: 614) reassigned Bergquist & Fromont’s species to the subgenus Myxilla (Ectyomyxilla), thus creating, despite the uncertainty concerning Myxilla ramosa Kieschnick, a junior secondary homonym, requiring a new name (ICZN Art. 60.3).
3. Summary: Myxilla (Myxilla) ramosa Kieschnick, 1896 is to be maintained as the senior secondary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.3). Myxilla (Ectyomyxilla) ramosa (Bergquist & Fromont, 1988) is a junior secondary homonym without an obvious synonym, so its name needed to be replaced (ICZN Art. 60.3). To remove the homonymy Myxilla (Ectyomyxilla) janeae nom.nov.was proposed, named after Jane Fromont.  [details]
