Homonymy This combination is a junior primary homonym of Spongia foliacea Esper, 1797 (which is a Callyspongia). Since Montagu's combination is accepted as a junior synonym of Grantia compressa (Fabricius, 1780) the homonymy appears to be removed (ICZN Art. 60.2). Breitfuss (1898, 1932) was unaware of the homonymy and assigned Montagu's (1814) Spongia foliacea to Grantia as Grantia foliacea (Montagu, 1814). Remarkably, Burton (1963: 444) assigned the combination Grantia foliacea to the authorship of Breitfuss, but that violated the junior homonymy of Montagu's name and created a further case of (secondary) homonymy. If it turns out that both Montagu's and Breitfuss' Grantia foliacea are junior synonyms of Grantia compressa, then the homonymies remain removed. [details]
