Nomenclature Nassa scalaris A. Adams, 1852, is a junior homonym of Nassa scalaris Borson, 1825, and therefore an invalid name. However, Cernohorsky (1984) stated he had seen only 7 specimens and was obviously uncertain of the validity of this species, which he compared to N. siquijorensis. He noted the homonymy but refrained from proposing a substitute name. The problem is still pending. [details]
