This name was first introduced by Bailey (1861: 6); CAS has "Invalid?" but does not give a reason why; however, the name has no morphological description, just an indication of habitat "*0dontella Mobilensis, B., with spicules of sponge". Later in the same publication Bailey (1861: 40, pl. 2: figs 34, 35) formally described what seems to be the same entity as Zugoceros mobiliensis and this has been treated as a valid name and employed as a basionym in subsequent publications. Grunow (1884: 58) used the name Odontella mobiliensis but inexplicably attributed the name to W. Smith [INA]. Williams, Sims & Ashworth (2018: 6) treat Odontella mobilensis Bailey as the earliest valid name despite tha lack of a validating description. If Odontella mobiliensis Bailey were to be valid it would have equal priority with publication with Zygoceros mobiliensis Bailey if both were shown to be based on the same type as appears to be the case. - (10 Feb 2016) - M.D. Guiry
