Sponges

A nice find; I've never come across these.

Likely

Likely ID has not passed to the new name.
I think ONE agreement there might swing it.
I also think, perhaps, the ID panel might then allow links to EOL, NBN etc.
BUT the issue might be....IS it the right name?

Name change

MARLIN gives Sycon as the new name, Scypha as a recent synonym

tapes

Yes thanks Nick. As you see Likely has shifted - but where are the links to Wikki, EOL and NBN?
I am finding my way through this minefield - it's time the way was marked with tapes!
I have discovered that Marlin is sometimes behind, so I am referencing WoRMS for a safer bet -

See how 'they' respond to the wrong one.
Thanks for having a tick in the right filter-box Nick.

Time

It often takes a while for the various online sources to catch up when the taxonomists have renamed something, and even when they update names, distribution maps are sometimes left uncorrected.
