Pennella holteni ( Desmarest, 1825) 

Not valid. Desmarest (1825) named a new species while transferring the species described by Holten (1802), P. exocoeti  , from Lernaea  to Lernaeopenna  , both of which are synonyms of Pennella  . There was no actual description of a new species in the original report. Accepted as P. exocoeti ( Walter & Boxshall 2015)  .
