Homonymy This combination is referred to in Esper’s (1794) plate X, not in the text (p. 202) where it says that the name has been altered and differs from the legend of the plate. The species meant by Esper (1794) is Spongia dichotoma Linnaeus, 1767. The name fruticosa is an incorrect name in the sense of the ICZN (Art. 32.5) and this does not enter in homonymy with Spongia fruticosa Montagu, 1814 (ICZN Art. 32.4). [details]
