Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3.1 of the Code, is to remove homonymy between the family names CLIONIDAE Rafinesque, 1815 (Mollusca) and CLIONIDAE d'Orbigny, 1851 (Porifera) by changing the spelling of the junior homonym. It is proposed that the entire name Cliona Grant, 1826 (Porifera) be used to form CLIONAIDAE, leaving the stem of the senior homonym (based on the name Clione Pallas, 1774, Mollusca) unchanged. Clione Pallas, 1774 and Clio Linnaeus, 1767 are respectively the type genera of CLIONIDAE Rafinesque, 1815 (Mollusca) and CLIOIDAE Jeffreys, 1869 (Mollusca).
