Homonymy DeMaintenon (2019) classified Astyris variegata in Mitrella and, doing so, considered that this removed the secondary homonymy with Columbella variegata Menke, 1828 and she reinstated Stearns' name as valid under ICZN Art. 59.4. However, a junior secondary homonym replaced before 1961 is permanently invalid (ICZN Art. 59.3), and Art. 59.4 does not apply here. [details]
