Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy This combination is a senior secondary homonym of Geodia piriformis Bösraug, 1913 (as G.poculata var. piriformis). The difference in spelling is deemed identical acc. to ICZN art. 58.2. However, Vosmaer's species is now accepted as a junior synonym of G. phlegraei, removing the homonymy with Bösraug's species. [details]
