Nomenclature Here we cite Van Soest et al.'s (2020) explanation for their proposed removal of the homonymy of Linnaeus' and Lamarck's Spongia cancellata.
Removal of homonymy between Aplysina cancellata (Linnaeus, 1767), Haliclona cancellata (Sowerby, 1806) and Echinodictyum cancellata (Lamarck, 1814).
1. Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767: 1297 (type locality unknown). The identity and origin of Linnaeus’ species is unclear because his description is too general, and no locality is known (‘Oceano’). Nevertheless, even though the identity of this sponge is unclear the name is still available and constituted a senior homonym of two other sponges: senior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806 which is accepted as Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea (Grant, 1826b); and senior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814 (which is currently accepted as Echinodictyum cancellatum (Lamarck, 1814). Esper (1794) provided a number of remarks and a plate (pl. VI) of what he considered as Spongia cancellata, based on his interpretation of the synonymy with Spongia fulva Pallas, 1766: 383. It is unclear why he came to this conclusion as Pallas’ sponge, now accepted as Aplysina fulva cannot be recognized in Linnaeus’ description of a tubular red-colored (‘ferrugineous’) sponge with holes in the walls. Nevertheless, it is parsimonious to adopt Esper’s (1794) conclusion, making Linnaeus’ (1767) species name a junior synonym of Aplysina fulva (Pallas, 1766).
2. Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806: 131 (type locality North Sea). Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806 is a junior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767, and a synonym of Spongia = Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea Grant, 1826: 204, which is the next available name for this taxon (De Weerdt 1987: 147). The name cancellata Sowerby being permanently unavailable (ICZN Art. 57.2), may also be assigned status as nomen oblitum (not used since 1899) because its junior synonym Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea has been used in at least 25 works by 10 different authors in the last 50 years, meeting the conditions of a nomen protectum sensu ICZN Art. 23.9.2.
3. Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814: 456 (type locality ‘Australian Seas’ MNHN Peron & Lesueur Collection). Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814 was first assigned to Echinodictyum cancellatum by Ridley (1884: 454), and the latter nomenclature is in widespread current usage (e.g. Hooper 1991: 1358). It is a junior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767: 1297, but Article 23.9.5 cannot be invoked to preserve Lamarck’s Spongia cancellata for current usage if the first reviser of Lamarck’s collection at the MNHN Paris is considered to be Topsent (1932: 7), (i.e. after 1899), in which case the new name would be Echinodictyum pulchrum Brøndsted, 1934 (as the first available junior synonym). Alternatively, the view could be that Ridley (1884: 457) was actually the first publication to reassign Lamarck’s (1814) name to Echinodictyum, predating the required date 1899, providing the possibility that ICZN Art. 23.9.5 could be invoked. However, that article also demands that the senior homonym Spongia cancellata Linnaeus was ‘in use’, which is not the case as it is a junior synonym of Aplysina fulva (Pallas). We adopt the view that the name is replaced by the first available synonym to remove the homonymy (ICZN Art. 60.2).
4. Summary: Aplysina cancellata (Linnaeus, 1767) is the senior primary homonym, which is a junior synonym of Aplysina fulva (Pallas, 1766). The accepted name is to be maintained (ICZN Art. 57.2). Haliclona cancellata (Sowerby, 1806) is a junior primary homonym, and it needed to be renamed (ICZN 57.2). The homonymy was removed by assigning it to the eldest available synonym Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea (Grant, 1826) (cf. De Weerdt 1987), which is in wide use (ICZN Art. 23.9.2.& 60.2). Echinodictyum cancellatum (Lamarck, 1814) is a junior primary homonym that was first revised by Ridley (1884) and assigned to Echinodictyum canc [details]

Nomenclature Here we cite Van Soest et al.'s (2020) explanation for their proposed removal of the homonymy of Linnaeus' and Lamarck's Spongia cancellata.
Removal of homonymy between Aplysina cancellata (Linnaeus, 1767), Haliclona cancellata (Sowerby, 1806) and Echinodictyum cancellata (Lamarck, 1814).
1. Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767: 1297 (type locality unknown). The identity and origin of Linnaeus’ species is unclear because his description is too general, and no locality is known (‘Oceano’). Nevertheless, even though the identity of this sponge is unclear the name is still available and constituted a senior homonym of two other sponges: senior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806 which is accepted as Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea (Grant, 1826b); and senior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814 (which is currently accepted as Echinodictyum cancellatum (Lamarck, 1814). Esper (1794) provided a number of remarks and a plate (pl. VI) of what he considered as Spongia cancellata, based on his interpretation of the synonymy with Spongia fulva Pallas, 1766: 383. It is unclear why he came to this conclusion as Pallas’ sponge, now accepted as Aplysina fulva cannot be recognized in Linnaeus’ description of a tubular red-colored (‘ferrugineous’) sponge with holes in the walls. Nevertheless, it is parsimonious to adopt Esper’s (1794) conclusion, making Linnaeus’ (1767) species name a junior synonym of Aplysina fulva (Pallas, 1766).
2. Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806: 131 (type locality North Sea). Spongia cancellata Sowerby, 1806 is a junior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767, and a synonym of Spongia = Haliclona (Reniera) cinerea Grant, 1826: 204, which is the next available name for this taxon (De Weerdt 1987: 147).

3. Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814: 456 (type locality ‘Australian Seas’ MNHN Peron & Lesueur Collection). Spongia cancellata Lamarck, 1814 was first assigned to Echinodictyum cancellatum by Ridley (1884: 454), and the latter nomenclature is in widespread current usage (e.g. Hooper 1991: 1358). It is a junior primary homonym of Spongia cancellata Linnaeus, 1767: 1297, but Article 23.9.5 cannot be invoked to preserve Lamarck’s Spongia cancellata for current usage if the first reviser of Lamarck’s collection at the MNHN Paris is considered to be Topsent (1932: 7), (i.e. after 1899), in which case the new name would be Echinodictyum pulchrum Brøndsted, 1934 (as the first available junior synonym).
