Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 81 of the Code, is the conservation of the spelling of the buprestid genus name Polybothris. The name was originally published as Polybotris but the spelling Polybothris has been in prevailing usage since 1900. Reversal of precedence cannot be used to suppress Polybotris since the spelling has been used in a small number of publications after 1899.
