Not to be confused with the plant genus, also named Peronia, a taxonomic synonym of Thalia

Peronia is a genus of air-breathing sea slugs, a shell-less marine pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Onchidiidae.[1]

Even if the name Onchis as proposed by Férussac, 1822 [April] [2] is older than Peronia Fleming, 1822 [June], there is no need to replace Peronia (adopted by Labbé and others) by Onchis (a name that was almost completely forgotten). The systematics of the family Onchidiidae is already quite confusing and there is no need to disrupt it further. Therefore Onchis is accepted as a synonym of Peronia.[3][4] Onchis was proposed by Férussac in 1822 without description or indication, so it was a nomen nudum and not made available at that occasion.

Quoya (plant)

provided by wikipedia EN

Quoya is a genus of flowering plants in family Lamiaceae and is endemic to Western Australia. Plants in this genus are shrubs with five petals joined to form a tube-shaped flower with four stamens of unequal lengths.

Description

Plants in the genus Quoya are evergreen shrubs densely covered with woolly hairs. The leaves are simple, egg-shaped to almost circular, arranged in opposite pairs and covered with branched hairs. The flowers are arranged in groups of 3 to 7, often forming short spikes and exhibit left-right symmetry. There are five sepals which are joined at their base, forming a short tube and five petals forming a straight or slightly curved tube with five lobes on the end, the upper lobes shorter than the lower ones. There are four stamens with the lower pair having reduced fertility. The fruit is a drupe with the sepals remaining attached.[2]

Taxonomy and naming

The genus was first described by Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupré in 1828 and the description was published in his book Voyage Autour du Monde ... sur les Corvettes de S.M. l'Uranie et la Physicienne. The type species is Quoya cuneata. The name of the genus (Quoya) honours the surgeon, zoologist and friend of Gaudichaud-Beaupré, Jean René Constant Quoy.[3][4]

The species of Quoya are:

Distribution

All species of Quoya are endemic to Western Australia.[5]
