Abstract
The purpose of this application, under Article 69 of the Code, is to fix the type species of the delphacid planthopper genus Liburnia Stål, 1866 as Embolophora monoceros Stål, 1855. Liburnia has had three type species designated, all of which are currently type species of other genera. Fixation of Embolophora monoceros Stål, 1855 as a type species for Liburnia will make Liburnia Stål, 1866 a junior objective synonym of Embolophora Stål, 1853, which is necessary to alleviate past confusion and prevent future reinterpretation of the genus.
