Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 59) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Mycale (Carmia) toxifera (Dendy, 1896) and Mycale (Paresperella) toxifera (Lévi, 1963).
1. Esperella toxifer (sic) Dendy, 1896: 16 (type locality Port Phillip Heads, Australia). The genus Esperella Vosmaer, 1887: 353 is a junior synonym of Mycale Gray, 1867: 533 (cf. Van Soest & Hajdu 2002: 670), so Esperella toxifer (name to be corrected to toxifera because the gender of Esperella is feminine), was transferred to Carmia toxifera by Lévi (1963: 14), and then to Mycale toxifera by Hooper & Wiedenmayer (1994: 292). The World Porifera Database assigned the species to Mycale (Carmia) toxifera. It is a senior secondary homonym of M. toxifera (Lévi, 1963) (ICZN Art. 57.3).
2. Paresperella toxifera Lévi, 1963: 14 (type locality off the Atlantic coast of South Africa). The genus Paresperella Dendy, 1905: 162 is a junior synonym of Mycale Gray, 1867 (cf. Van Soest & Hajdu 2002: 670) but recognized as a subgenus, so Paresperella toxifera was transferred to Mycale (Paresperella) toxifera in Van Soest et al. (2014: 94), making it a junior secondary homonym of M. toxifera (Dendy, 1896), requiring a new name (ICZN Art. 60.3).
3. Summary: Mycale (Carmia) toxifera (Dendy, 1896) is to be maintained as the senior secondary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.3). Mycale (Paresperella) toxifera (Lévi, 1963) is a junior secondary homonym and thus the name needed to be replaced (ICZN Art. 60.3). To remove the homonymy Mycale (Paresperella) claudei nom.nov. was proposed, named after Claude Lévi. [details]
