AbstractNomina nova should be used only to denote replacement names for preoccupied names, i.e. in the case of homonymy. Three examples of incorrect applications of nomina nova in scleractinian taxonomy are given. Coincidentally, in the cases discussed each wrongly proposed nomen novum concerns a new species so that there are no nomenclatorial consequences. For one of these species, Galaxea paucisepta Claereboudt, 1990, a lectotype is designated.
