Nomenclature We cite here Van Soest et al's (2020: 24) explanation for the proposed nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Thenea echinata (Verrill, 1874) and Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904.
1. Dorvillia echinata Verrill, 1874: 500 (type locality off the coast of New England, USA). Verrill’s (1874: 500) description of his new species Dorvillia echinata is brief, incomplete and not illustrated, but his allocation to the genus Dorvillia Kent, 1870 (= Thenea Gray, 1867) based on spiculation and shape, and comparison of it to the type species Thenea muricata Bowerbank, 1858, strongly indicates its affinities to the genus Thenea (O.S. Tendal, in litteris). In this case the species is the senior secondary homonym of Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904 (ICZN Art. 57.3 & 57.4).
2. Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904: 91 (type locality off the W coast Mexico, East Pacific). Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904 is a junior secondary homonym of Thenea echinata (Verrill, 1904) following the transfer of Dorvillia Kent, 1870 into synonymy with Thenea Gray, 1867 (Maldonado 2002: 156), requiring a new name (ICZN 57.3).
3. Summary: Thenea echinata (Verrill, 1874) is to be maintained as the senior secondary homonym of Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904 (ICZN Art. 57.3 & 57.4). Thenea echinata Wilson, 1904 is the junior secondary homonym of Thenea echinata (Verrill, 1904), and in the absence of synonyms it required a new name (ICZN Art. 59.1 and 60.3), for which Thenea wilsoni nom.nov. was proposed, named after Henry Van Peters Wilson. [details]
