Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority The Systema Porifera chapter on Hemiasterellidae (Hooper, 2002) quotes Montagu (1818) as the author of this species. However, the combination was already used by Ellis & Solander (1786). Montagu also refers to this work, so we must accept Ellis & Solander, 1786 as the authors. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy This is a senior homonym of Spongia stuposa Esper, 1794, now accepted as Ulosa stuposa. However, since both are primary homonyms, the present situation violates art. 57.2 of the Code of Zoological Nomenclature (the junior homonym is permanently invalid). [details]
