Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This is a junior primary homonym of Spongia oculata Linnaeus, 1759, because Pallas did not refer to Linnaeus, 1759. However, Linnaeus (1767) later on referred to Pallas and to the locality from which Pallas recorded Spongia oculata. Junior primary homonyms are permanently unavailable, but Linnaeus' senior name remains available. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This is a junior primary homonym of Spongia oculata Linnaeus, 1759, because Pallas did not refer to Linnaeus, 1759. However, Linnaeus (1767) later on referred to Pallas and to the locality from which Pallas recorded Spongia oculata. Junior primary homonyms are permanently unavailable, but Linnaeus' senior name remains available. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType designation De Weerdt (2002: 865) mentions BMNH 1841.1.13.46 as a possible Pallas specimen, not as a Linnaeus specimen. Neither author has left recognizable and properly labeled specimens, so the status of this material remains spculative. De Weerdt (l.c.) did not use the term 'lectotype', so any claim for type status is so far unsubstantiated. [details]
