Homonymy Tovar-Hernández et al (2020: 54) regarded Potamilla oligophthalma as a potential secondary homonym of Pseudopotamilla oligophthamos (Grube, 1878). However, the two-letter difference in spelling is sufficient for the species names not to be homonyms. 'oligophthalmus -a -um' are the gender-variable adjectival forms, whereas Grube's 'oligophthamos' is an unusual and invariant noun form.  [details]

Homonymy Tovar-Hernández et al (2020: 54) regarded Potamilla oligophthalma as a potential secondary homonym of Pseudopotamilla oligophthamos (Grube, 1878).

Synonymy Knight-Jones et al (2017), and repeated by Tovar-Hernández et al (2020), tentatively (not in a formal synonymy) place Potamilla oligophthalma Iroso as a synonym of Pseudopotamilla saxicava. They state: "All three new species of Iroso (1921, as Potamilla) from the Gulf of Naples were synonymised with P. reniformis by Hartman (1959). As P. saxicava has been found to the west and the east of Italy and as Potamilla tronculata Iroso had their tubes within an empty oyster shell and P. oligophthalma Iroso was within Porites or valves of molluscs, it seems more likely that at least these two ‘species’ should be referred to P. saxicava. Iroso says nothing about the habitat of Potamilla obscura except that it never forms colonies. She mistakenly separated the three species on numbers of radiolar eyes and the length or absence of the mucro on each spoon-shaped thoracic chaeta [details]
