Oceanapia topsenti  nom. nov.

Phloeodictyon medium Topsent, 1928  : p. 321–322, pl. II, fig. 18, pl. X, fig. 27 (Azores).

Oceanapia media  ; Burton 1956: p. 142 (genus transfer).

Not Oceanapia media ( Thiele, 1899)  (a valid species).

Remarks. Thiele (1899) described Rhizochalina media  from Indonesia. Topsent (1928) described a new species from the Azores as Phloeodictyon medium  , the species was transferred to Oceanapia  by Burton (1956). When Van Soest (1980) proposed Rhizochalina  as synonym of Oceanapia  , he induced the homonymy between these species. According to the International Code of Zoological Name ( ICZN 1999: 52.2) the name of the species Oceanapia media ( Topsent, 1928)  should be rejected. Oceanapia topsenti  nom. nov. is herein proposed as a replacement name for Oceanapia media ( Topsent, 1928)  homonymy of Oceanapia media ( Thiele, 1899)  .

Etymology. Named after Emile Topsent, who designated the species name.
