Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy De Laubenfels, 1930: 28 erected this name as Gellius (?) epocheomaius with the remark 'Has no sigmas but in other respects is very like the genus Gellius'. Later (De Laubenfels, 1932: 114), after designating and describing a holotype for a species, Halichoclona gellindra (a species not mentioned in the 1930 list), he said that another somewhat similar specimen, which he previously (1930) called Gellius epocheoamaius, was so poor that it 'was not worth treating as a separate species because of its similarity to gellindra'. This ambiguous statement can be interpreted in at least two ways: (1) Gellius epocheomaius is the same species as Halichoclona gellindra, or (2) Gellius epocheomaius is close to but different from Halichoclona gellindra. In the first case, Halichoclona gellindra would be a junior synonym of Halichoclona epocheomaius and the description of H. gellindra would then extend to H. epocheomaius. In the second case, Gellius epocheomaius is a nomen nudum or species inquirenda, while H. gellindra stays an accepted name. Until this has been studied properly, we choose here the latter solution.  [details]
