In opinion 2166, the ICZN (2007) ruled that Oceania armata  is a valid name, that it is the type species of the genus Oceania Péron & Lesueur, 1810  , and that the correct spelling of the family name is Oceaniidae  . Tiarella Trinci, 1906  is a synonym of Oceania  and preoccupied by Tiarella Swainson  [Mollusca].
