Homonymy This species is vaguely described as similar to Spongia dichotoma sensu Linnaeus and Pallas. Apparently the plates (Pl. IV and Pl. X) have been swapped and in the copy available from the Biodiversity Heritage Library there are pencil corrections in both plates, that do not leave a clear indication which of the plates refers to Spongia fruticosa. We have to assume this combination to be incertae sedis. As it has not been used after 1899, the name is a nomen oblitum in the sense of ICZN art. 23.9.1 and is to be suppressed in favor of its junior homonym Spongia fruticosa Montagu, 1814. The latter is currently accepted as Desmacidon fruticosum[details]
