Taxonomic remark From Wisshak et al., 2019: Bascomella Morningstar, 1922, represented by its type ichnospecies B. gigantea Morningstar, 1922, was originally considered to be a ctenostome bryozoan boring composed of zooidal chambers and interconnecting stolons. ... Their actual composite nature of accidentally co-occurring acrothoracican borings and tubular borings of unknown origin was recognized by Elias (1957), who advocated redefning Bascomella as the pouch-shaped borings only. Restricting a composite ichnotaxon to one of its components, however, deviates from the original author’s intention: Morningstar (1922) meant to name the composite structure and hence, no single element can and may be isolated from it. The redefnition by Elias (1957) fails for this reason and consequently the composite ichnotaxon is invalidated, as it contains the work of more than one organism (e.g., Bertling et al. 2006). [details]
