Strombus wilsonorum Abbott, 1967

As Abbott described Strombus (Canarium) wilsoni, he named it after more than one person. Therefore  the epithet "wilsoni"  is an incorrect original spelling  and should be emended, following ICZN regulations, to "wilsonorum".  Oddly enough, this action has a consequence.  Petuch (1994) described a fossil species similar to, and maybe conspecific with,  Strombus raninus Gmelin, 1791 as Strombus wilsonorum. This latter binomen is a junior homonym of Strombus wilsonorum Abbott, and it has been renamed Strombus praeraninus Kronenberg and Dekker, 2000. This is only a nomenclatural act, making no statement whatsoever about the "validity" of Petuch's species.
