Nomenclature Here we cite Van Soest et al.'s (2020: 38-39) explanation for the nomen novum.
Removal of homonymy between Mycale (Paresperella) levii (Uriz, 1987) and Mycale (Carmia) levii Samaai & Gibbons, 2005.
1. Paresperella levii Uriz, 1987: 60 (type locality Atlantic coast of South Africa). Originally described as Paresperella levii Uriz, 1987 as a nom.nov. for Paresperella atlantica sensu Lévi, 1963: 13 (not P. atlantica Stephens, 1917: 7 from the Irish North Atlantic). The genus Paresperella Dendy, 1905: 162 is now accepted as a synonym of and subgenus of Mycale Gray, 1867: 533 (cf. Van Soest & Hajdu 2002: 683), making Uriz’s (1987) name for the South African species a senior secondary homonym of Mycale (Carmia) levii Samaai & Gibbons, 2005.
2. Mycale (Carmia) levii Samaai & Gibbons, 2005: 79 (type locality Atlantic coast of South Africa). This original combination is a junior homonym of Mycale (Paresperella) levii (Uriz, 1987) when Paresperella Dendy, 1905 was synonymised with Mycale Gray, 1867 by Van Soest & Hajdu (2002), thus it required a new name.
3. Summary: Mycale (Paresperella) levii (Uriz, 1987) is maintained as a senior secondary name (ICZN Art. 57.3). Mycale (Carmia) levii Samaai & Gibbons, 2005 is a junior secondary homonym without published synonyms (ICZN Art. 60.3). To remove the homonymy, Mycale (Carmia) samaaii nom. nov. was proposed, named after Toufiek Samaai. [details]
