Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 10.1, 13.3 and 81.1 of the Code, is to make available the genus-group name Nesocyrtosoma Marcuzzi, 1976 and subsequently designate Cyrtosoma inflatum Marcuzzi, 1976 as the type species. As this is the prevailing nomenclatural usage, this act will serve to promote stability in this West Indian genus of tenebrionid beetles.
