Removal of homonymy between Suberites carnosus ramosus Topsent, 1900 and Suberites ramosus Brøndsted, 1924.
1. Suberites carnosus ramosus Topsent, 1900: 235 (type locality Golfe du Lion, Mediterranean). Suberites carnosus (Johnston, 1842: 146) was expanded by Topsent (1900: 210) to encompass a.o. thinly erect ramose forms, which he named forma ramosus (forms with irregular broader branches and digitations were considered to belong to Suberites massa Nardo, 1847: 116). Subsequently, he discovered (Topsent 1938: 13) that the thin forms were already described as Raspailia syringella Schmidt, 1868: 10, so he proposed the name Suberites carnosus var. syringella to replace the var. ramosus. The distinction between Suberites massa and S. syringella is not well-established, but there is consensus about a species Suberites syringella distinct from Suberites carnosus restricted to club-shaped or mushroom-like forms with a large central apical oscule (cf. Ackers et al. 1992: 58) (ICZN Art. 57.2). .
2. Suberites ramosus Brøndsted, 1924: 160 (type locality Campbell Island, New Zealand). The species was overlooked by recent studies of Suberitidae from New Zealand (Bergquist 1968; Kelly et al. 2009). There is some resemblance with the species mentioned above, but the branches are more strongly anastomosed, and the large geographic distance makes conspecificity quite unlikely. It is a junior primary homonym of Topsent’s Suberites carnosus ramosus (ICZN Art. 59.1) requiring a new name.
3. Summary: Suberites syringella (Schmidt, 1868) is to be maintained as a senior synonym of Suberites carnosus ramosus, which is the senior primary homonym (ICZN Art. 57.2). Suberites ramosus Brøndsted, 1924 is a junior primary homonym without known synonyms, and despite the senior homonym being reassigned to Suberites syringella the name remained a junior homonym that needed to be replaced (ICZN Art. 59.1, 60.3). To remove the homonymy Suberites holgeri nom.nov.was proposed, named after Holger Valdemar Brøndsted. [details]
