Removal of homonymy between Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859, Tedania (Tedania) aspera (Bowerbank, 1875) and Halichondria aspera Swartschewsky, 1906.
1. Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859: 529, Pl. X, Fig. 7 (type locality Adriatic, Mediterranean). Although the identity of Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859 is still uncertain, it remained the senior primary homonym of Halichondria aspera Bowerbank, 1875 and Halichondria aspera Swartschewsky, 1906 (ICZN Art. 57.2).
2. Halichondria aspera Bowerbank, 1875: 287 (type locality Straits of Malacca). Originally described as Halichondria aspera Bowerbank, 1875 this species was nominated as the type species of Xytopsihis De Laubenfels, 1936: 54, and subsequently misinterpreted as a species of Lissodendoryx and a senior synonym of several other species (cf. Hofman & Van Soest 1995: 87), whereas Van Soest (2002: 629) demonstrated it and the nominal genus Xytopsihis are synonyms of Tedania (Tedania). Van Soest (2002) suggested that it is similar to Tedania (Tedania) dirhaphis Hentschel, 1912, but failed to decide it was really a synonym. Irrespectively, the species remained a junior homonym of Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859 and required a new name (ICZN Art. 57.2).
3. Halichondria aspera Swartschewsky, 1906: 323 (type locality White Sea, Arctic). Halichondria aspera Swartschewsky, 1906 was recognised by Hentschel (1929: 993) and De Laubenfels (1936: 55) as being a different species from Halichondria aspera Bowerbank, 1875, for which De Laubenfels proposed a new name, Halichondria lona De Laubenfels, 1936: 55, thus removing homonymy between the two species.
4. Summary: Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859 is the senior primary homonym and the name is maintained (ICZN Art. 57.2). Tedania (Tedania) aspera (Bowerbank, 1875) is a junior primary homonym of Halichondria aspera Lieberkühn, 1859 and in the absence of a definite synonym required a new name, for which Tedania (Tedania) bowerbanki nom. nov., was proposed, named after James Scott Bowerbank (ICZN Art. 57.2 & 60.3). Halichondria aspera Swartschewsky, 1906 was given a new name of Halichondria lona De Laubenfels 1936. [details]
