Curculio contractus Marsham, 1802 (currently Ceutorhynchus contractus; Insecta, Coleoptera): specific name conserved
Abstract

The Commission has ruled that the specific name Ceutorhynchus contractus (Marsham, 1802) is conserved for a well known species of European weevil (family curculionidae) by suppression of a little used senior primary homonym Curculio contractus Geoffroy in Fourcroy, 1785.
