Homonymy This combination is a junior secondary homonym of Sycon asperum Schmidt, 1862. As the latter is now accepted as Leucandra aspera, the homonymy has been removed.  [details]

Synonymy Burton (1963, p. 63 and 442) assigned this to Grantia compressa (as Scypha. Although Gibson's description lacks illustrations (caption of a Pl. X was printed in the text of the description, but no Pl. X was found in the LMBC Report 1) it is quite likely Burton was right. No further records under this name are known. [details]
