The creation of the International Fossil Plant Names Index (IFPNI, 2014 onwards) with the aim of listing of all fossil plant species reveals a few new cases of homonymy between fossil and extant species. In the present paper there are proposed two new combinations in Hemitrapa Miki (1941:289) and four replacing names for later homonyms of Trapa Linnaeus (1753:120) that are illegitimate (Art. 53.1 of the International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi and Plants—ICN, McNeill et al, 2012). New nomenclatural acts were registered through a pilot registration version in the International Fossil Plant Names Index (IFPNI 2014 onwards), with unique persistent registration barcode (LSID) listed under each newly proposed fossil plant taxon. © 2016 Magnolia Press.

New generic names . Szecalamitina nom. nov., . Gigantogramme nom. nov., and . Gigantocladus nom. nov. are proposed here for the Permian plants of Cathaysia to replace illegitimate names . Siella Yang, 2006, . Acanthocladus Yang, 2006, and . Hallea Yang et Wu, 2006, which are later homonyms respectively of flowering plants . Siella . Pimenov, 1978 (. Rubiaceae) and . Acanthocladus . Hasskarl, 1864 (. Polygalaceae), . Hallea . Mathews, 1948, used for fossil seeds. New combinations are made to transfer all described species of these Chinese fossil plants into new genera, .

The new names Mciveriella and Rhamnica are proposed to replace later homonyms, Harmsia McIver & Basinger and Rhamnites Forbes ex McIver & Basinger respectively. Rhamnites Newberry is restored as a valid genus, being synonymized with Amelanchites McIver & Basinger. Rhamnites Forbes ex Berry is re-classified as Berchemiopsis McGinitie. The new combinations Archeampelos lobatocrenata, Archeampelos nebrascensis, Berchemiopsis berchemiiformis, Mciveriella hydrocotyloidea, Rhamnica cleburnii, Rhamnica goldiana, Rhamnites asperus are proposed. Furthermore the illegitimate name Populus cordata Newberry (non Hort. ex Poiret) is lectotypified and transferred into Archeampelos with the new name A. yellowstonica. © 2016 Magnolia Press.

12 fossil species names of Potamogeton described from the Miocene to Pleistocene sediments of Eurasia based on fruit endocarp findings were found to be later homonyms of some extant and fossil species of Potamogeton and are here replaced by new names: Potamogeton baluevae (replacement name for fossil P. decipiens), P. borsukiae (replacement name for fossil P. carinatus), P. gorbunovii (replacement name for fossil P. pseudofriesii), P. jakubovskajae (replacement name for fossil P. praenatans), P. kasakorum (replacement name for fossil P. pliocenicus), P. kolesnikovae (replacement name for fossil P. stylatus), P. kondinskajae (replacement name for fossil P. obtusus), P. novorossicus (replacement name for fossil P. corniculatus), P. pashkovii (replacement name for fossil P. striatus), P. rutiloides (replacement name for fossil P. palaeorutilus), P. snigirevskajae (replacement name for fossil P. microcarpus), P. volgensis (replacement name for fossil P. tataricus). Nomenclature and typification of names are given along with their palaeogeographic and stratigraphic data. © 2016 Magnolia Press.

The name Ficus changii Doweld nom. nov. is proposed here as a replacement name for the extant Ficus ovatifolia S. S. Chang (1984), a later homonym of the fossil name Ficus ovatifolia E. W. Berry (1909). The name Ficus fengkaiensis Doweld nom. nov. is published for the illegitimate name Ficus undulata S. S. Chang (1984), a later homonym of Ficus undulata Buch.-Ham. (Buchanan-Hamilton 1827). The name Ficus obtusatoides Doweld nom. nov. is proposed here as a replacement name for the fossil Ficus obtusata Heer (1856), a later homonym of the extant name Ficus obtusata Link (1822). The name Ficus tethyca Doweld nom. nov. is proposed as a replacement name for the fossil Ficus lucida M. Chandler (1962), a later homonym of the extant name Ficus lucida Dryand. (Dryander in Aiton 1789). © 2016, The Board of Trustees of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

“Cycadeoidea”, “C. megalophylla”, “C. microphylla” and “Cycadeoideaceae” (as “Cycadeoideae”) were not validly published by Buckland in his works of 1828 because his proposed fossil genus “Cycadeoidea” lacked a separate diagnosis or description. Later in 1828. Brongniart validly published the genus name Mantellia for this fossil taxon with the type being M. nidiformis Brongn., the same taxon represented by Buckland’s “C. megalophylla”. Later Lindley & Hutton (1832) validly published Cycadeoidea but as an illegitimate superfluous replacement name of Mantellia. The confused nomenclatural history of Mantellia (≡ Cycadeoidea) is summarized and corrected with new bibliographic and historical data. Since the illegitimate name Cycadeoidea is widely used in systematic palaeobotany for distinct spermatophyte fossils, its retention is sought through a conservation proposal. © International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT) 2016.

A junior homonym of an extant species, the fossil Pterocarya japonica Uemura 1988 (non Dippel 1891), which was previously proposed for the illegitimate homonym Juglans japonica Tanai 1961 (non Miquel 1867), is replaced with a new name, P. rhoifolioides Doweld. © 2016, Tsumura Laboratory.

The International Fossil Plant Names Index (IFPNI, 2014 onwards) lists some fossil plant species names which have precedence over homonymic extant species names. A few cases of the homonymy between extant and fossil species were recently resolved (Turner 2014, Doweld 2015a, 2015b, 2015c, 2015d) © 2016 Magnolia Press.
