quote: "Otto (1820) introduced the name Siphostoma by fusing the Greek words for pipe (siphon, masculine) and mouth (stoma, neuter). One year later, probably after noticing that the name was already used in sygnathid fishes (Siphostoma Rafinesque, 1810), he proposed Siphonostoma. Thus, Siphonostoma Otto, 1821 was regarded as a replacement name for Siphostoma by Sherborn (1930:5993), and by Neave (1939, 4:206) and, regretfully, there were two other cases for the same name: one in rotifers (Siphonostoma Zenker, 1832), and another in mollusks (Siphonostoma Guilding, 1840). Thus, although the flabelligerid name would be the older one, Grube (1840:68) introduced Siphonostomum which is an orthographic emendation of the gender. Nevertheless, Siphonostoma Otto, 1821, would have priority over Flabelligera Sars, 1829. Agassiz (1846) proposed Siphonostoma as a replacement name to solve the homonymy between Siphostoma Rafinesque, 1810 and Siphostoma Otto, 1820. Thus, this replacement name, Siphonostoma Agassiz, 1846, would replace the junior homonym, Siphostoma Otto, 1820. Con¬sequently and strictly speaking, Siphonostoma Agassiz, 1846 became a secondary homonym to Siphostoma Zenker, 1832, and to Siphostoma Guilding, 1840, and it was no solution at all. Again, Siphonostoma Otto, 1821 would be the older name and should have priority." [details]
