No, the specimen is not associated with any other name than *M.
orbicularis*. It stays the holotype of *M. orbicularis* -- even though *M.
orbicularis* is now a junior subjective synonym of *M. celticus*, so that
the specimen is (now) _at the same time_ a referred specimen of *M.
celticus*.

Good luck with your paper! :-)
