Eurypon pulitzeri   nom. nov.

Eurypon coronula Topsent, 1936: 66   –67, fig. 12 (not Hymeraphia coronula Bowerbank, 1874: 246   –248, pl. LXXIX).

Eurypon topsenti Pulitzer-Finalli, 1983: 531   –533, fig. 50 (not Dragmatyle topsenti Burton, 1954: 235   , pl. 9, fig. 7; text-fig. 9).

Remarks. Topsent (1936) identified a specimen as Eurypon coronula ( Bowerbank, 1874)   . Pulitzer-Finalli (1983) revised Topsent’s material and proposed a new species: Eurypon topsenti   (from Western Mediterranean). However, when Hooper (2002) transferred Dragmatyle Topsent, 1904   to Eurypon   , it was established the secondary homonym of Burton’s material (previously as Dragmatyle topsenti Burton, 1954   ). Following the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature ( ICZN 1999: art. 52.2), Eurypon topsenti Pulitzer-Finalli, 1983   must be rejected. Eurypon pulitzeri   nom. nov. is proposed as a replacement name for Eurypon topsenti Pulitzer-Finalli, 1983   , a secondary homonym of Eurypon topsenti ( Burton, 1954)   .

Etymology. Named after Gustavo Pulitzer-Finalli, who designated the species name of Topsent’s material.
