From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy This is a senior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806, which is accepted as Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea (Grant, 1826) and of Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814, which is currently accepted as Echinodictyum cancellatum (Lamarck, 1814). The latter name is threatened because it is based on a junior primary homonym.
Esper (1794) provided a number of remarks and a plate (pl. VI) of what he considered as Spongia cancellata, based on his interpretation of the synonymy with Spongia fulva Pallas, 1766. It is unclear why he came to this conclusion as Pallas' sponge, now accepted as Aplysina fulva cannot be recognized in Linnaeus' description of a tubular red-colored ('ferrugineous') sponge with holes in the walls. Nevertheless, it is tempting to adopt Esper's idea, because it would make Linnaeus' species name a junior synonym of Pallas' Aplysina fulva>[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Uncertain locality and identity. Linnaeus' description in Latin is unrecognizable and he did not indicate any images or descriptions in pre-Linnaean publications. [details]
