Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy According to Støp-Bowitz (1948:13) "La plupart des auteurs récents supposent que le nom générique Pherusa OKEN, 1815, soit préoccupé par LEACH (1814) en Crustacés. Cependant, d'aprés SHERBORN: Index Animalium, OKEN a publié ce nom déjà en 1807. Par conséquent le nom correct de ce genre est Pherusa OKEN, 1807, auquel doit céder tant Stylaroides DELLE CHIAJE, 1830 (SHERBORN: 1841) que Trophonia, dont l'origine semble être un peu incertaine (voir SHERBORN)." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Type species Amphitrite plumosa O. F. Muller 1776 in Fauchald, 1977:117. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorValidity Pherusa (a potential junior homonym if Pherusa not available as published in 1807) was introduced as a name for an existing species, Amphitrite plumosa, and therefore is an available name from that date (see ICZN Art 12.2.5) and appears to be the senior homonym, thus valid. [details]
