From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy A junior secondary homonym of Spongia virgultosa Esper, 1797, but this is a nomen nudum. Also a junior secondary homonym of Spongia virgultosa Lamarck, 1814. However, since the latter is accepted as Clathria (Thalysias) virgultosa, Schmidt's name can be maintained as an accepted combination. [details]
