Nomenclature Here we cite Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 25) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Ulosa elongata (Lamarck, 1814) and Spongia elongata Hyatt, 1877.
1. Spongia elongata Lamarck, 1814: 547 (type locality ‘Australia’). Originally described as Spongia elongata Lamarck, 1814 the species was transferred to Chalina by Ridley (1884: 603) and subsequently to Stylinos Topsent, 1891 by Topsent (1932: 116), followed by Hooper & Wiedenmayer (1994: 295). Van Soest & Hajdu (2002: 664), followed by the WPD (2019) demonstrated that Stylinos is a junior synonym of Hymeniacidon Bowerbank, 1858, but that other species assigned to Stylinos should be referred to Ulosa De Laubenfels, 1936, along with Spongia elongata Lamarck as Ulosa elongata. In spite of this transfer, Spongia elongata Lamarck, 1814 is the senior primary homonym of Spongia agaricina corlosia (sic) var. elongata Hyatt, 1877 (ICZN Art. 57.2).
2. Spongia agaricina subsp. corlosia (sic) var. elongata Hyatt, 1877: 524 (type locality Key West, Florida). Spongia agaricina subsp. corlosia var. elongata Hyatt, 1877 (corlosia being a misspelling of Spongia (Spongia) coelosia Duchassaing & Michelotti, 1864: 122), is a Spongia incertae sedis, but the name is available and remained in homonymy with Spongia elongata Lamarck, 1814, and required a new name (ICZN Art. 57.2 & 60.1).
3. Summary: Ulosa elongata (Lamarck, 1814), is the senior secondary homonym of Spongia elongata Hyatt, 1877 (ICZN Art. 57.2) and is to be maintained. Spongia elongata Hyatt, 1877 is a junior primary homonym of Spongia elongata Lamarck, 1814 and despite being incertae sedis it required a new name (ICZN Art. 60.3), for which Spongia alpheusi nom. nov.was proposed, named after Alpheus Hyatt. [details]
