Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al.'s (2020:45-46) explanation for the status of Spongia anclotea as a nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Hyattella pertusa (Esper, 1794) and Spongia pertusa (Hyatt, 1877).
1. Spongia pertusa Esper, 1794: 246 (type locality India?). Esper’s (1794) material was redescribed from the type specimen in the Hermann collection by Topsent (1920: 316). Esper indicated that the origin of the specimen was unknown, but Topsent cited India. He reassigned the specimen to the genus Hyattella Von Lendenfeld, 1888: 233, thus the accepted identity is Hyattella pertusa. It shows resemblance to the Red Sea Hyattella tubaria Von Lendenfeld, 1889: 117, which if it is conspecific would become a junior synonym.
2. Spongia officinalis subsp. tubulifera var. pertusa Hyatt, 1877: 512 (type locality Nassau, Bahamas). The combination Spongia pertusa Hyatt, 1877 was used by Van Soest (1978:12) and others for a common species of the Caribbean. It is a junior primary homonym of Esper’s (1794) Spongia pertusa. Junior synonyms of this species according to Van Soest and also Von Lendenfeld (1889:248) are Spongia officinalis tubulifera var. mollis, prava, and
corlosiformis
Hyatt, 1877: 512-514. Since these are not really discussed and compared, and the identities of these varieties are not well established, the junior synonymy is not at all certain. For this reason Van Soest et al. (2020) refrained from proposing them as substitute names in the sense of ICZN Art. 60.1. Von Lendenfeld (1889: 248) also mentioned Euspongia conifera Von Lendenfeld, 1886: 500 as a junior synonym of pertusa Hyatt, but this specmen is from Torres Strait, Northeast Australia, and thus also an unlikely conspecific specimen. However, Hooper & Wiedenmayer (1994:391-2) apparently considered it a replacement name (as Spongia conifera) for pertusa sensu Hyatt, along with some unlikely junior synonyms as Euspongia trincomaliensis Von Lendenfeld, 1889:260, Euspongia officinalis arabica Keller, 1889:342, and Euspongia officinalis ceylonensis Dendy, 1905: 211. None of these synonymy designations are presented other than as name synomyms without proper descriptions. They are not convincing as potentially valid junior synonyms in the sense of ICZN Art. 60.2. Spongia (Spongia) arabica Keller and Spongia (Spongia) ceylonensis Dendy have been used by various authors and in the World Porifera Database these are considered accepted. A more recent convincing junior synonym is Spongia anclotea De Laubenfels & Storr, 1958: 106. Van Soest (1978:13-14) accepted this as a junior synonym and this was proposed as a replacement name for pertusa Hyatt.
3. Summary: Hyattella pertusa (Esper, 1794) as the senior primary homonym is to be maintained (ICZN Art. 57.2). Spongia (Spongia) pertusa Hyatt, 1877 is a junior primary homonym, which needed to be replaced (ICZN Art. 60). To remove this homonymy, the oldest potentially valid synonym, Spongia (Spongia) anclotea De
Laubenfels & Storr, 1958 was proposed as the replacement name, thus invalidating previous proposals of Von Lendenfeld (1889) and Hooper & Wiedenmayer (1994). [details]
