Taxonomy De Laubenfels (1936: 134), in a remarkably convoluted reasoning, erected this as a replacement name for Spongia cavernosa sensu Lamarck, 1814 (not S. cavernosa Pallas, 1766). At the same time he intended this as a replacement for Ciocalypta penicillus, which would be a junior synonym of Spongia cavernosa = Ciocalypta cavernosa as redescribed by Topsent (1930). The obvious choice of a replacement name, if Ciocalypta penicillus and Spongia cavernosa sensu Lamarck were conspecific, would be Ciocalypta penicillus, as the first available species name, and a new name C. alleni would have been totally unnecessary. Here, we retain C. alleni as separate from C. penicillus as it is quite likely that Lamarck's material was not from Europe, but from South Australia, and thus conspecificity is unlikely. [details]
