Removal of homonymy between Suberites compactus Balsamo-Crivelli, 1863 and Suberites compacta Verrill, 1873.
1. Suberites compactus Balsamo-Crivelli, 1863: 14 (type locality Gulf of Naples, Mediterranean). Suberites compactus Balsamo-Crivelli, 1863 was synonymised with Suberites domuncula (Olivi, 1792), based on the presumed synonymy of Alcyonium compactum Lamarck, 1815 (Topsent 1933: 40). The present combination is a senior homonym of Suberites compactus Verrill, 1873 (ICZN Art. 57.2).
2. Suberites compacta Verrill, 1873: 744 (type locality Woods Hole, Atlantic coast, USA). Originally described as Suberites compacta Verrill, 1873, it is corrected to compactus to agree with the masculine gender of Suberites (WPD 2019) (ICZN Art. 34.2). De Laubenfels (1949: 19) considered Verrill’s species to be a junior synonym of Choanites ficus (Johnson, 1842) (not sensu Pallas, 1766 or Esper, 1794), which was transferred back to Suberites ficus (see Van Soest 2002: 240). It is unclear if Verrill’s and Johnson’s species are synonyms, but Suberites compactus Verrill, 1873 needs to be renamed because it is a junior primary homonym of Suberites compactus Balsamo-Crivelli, 1863 (ICZN Art. 60.1).
3. Summary: Suberites compactus Balsamo-Crivelli, 1863 is the senior primary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.2), which is reassigned to the synonymy of Suberites domuncula (Olivi, 1792). Suberites compactus Verrill, 1873 is the junior primary homonym, which in the absence of synonyms needs to be renamed (ICZN Art. 60.3), for which Suberites verrilli nom.nov. was proposed, named after Addison Emery Verrill. [details]
