Phyllomorpha Laporte, 1833 (Insecta, Heteroptera): spelling and existing usage conserved
Abstract

The Commission has ruled that the spelling and current usage of the generic name Phyllomorpha Laporte, 1833 is conserved. The generic name has been used consistently for a genus of coreidid heteropterans found in Southern Europe, North Africa and the western part of Asia to Pakistan, although it is an incorrect spelling of the generic name Phyllomorphus Laporte 1833. Coreus hystrix Latreille 1817 is designated as the type species, with all fixations of type species before Reuter (1888) set aside.
