Thank you, Philip.  Of course, my last sentence is a "lapsus calami"
(now what's the Latin for "keyboard"?); it is always the junior
(later) homonym that cannot be used.  John

The situation with A. marginatus is as John has said, with the important
difference that it is marginatus MULLER which is invalid under Art. 57b
(in saying ME & B John made a slip of the keyboard!). A replacement
name is necessary. It is indeed irrelevant that Garcia-Gomez didn't
recognize the earlier taxon.
