Abstract

The purposes of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 55.3 of the Code, are to conserve the usage of the family-group name STENODERINI Pascoe, 1859 (Insecta, Coleoptera, CERAMBYCIDAE) by giving it precedence over the senior but unused name SYLLITINI Thomson, 1864, and to emend the family-group name STENODERINI Selander, 1991 (Insecta, Coleoptera, MELOIDAE), a junior homonym of STENODERINI Pascoe, 1859, to STENODERAINI, thereby removing the homonymy between the two names
