Pedionomus Gould, December 1840 (Aves, pedionomidae) and Leipoa Gould, December 1840 (Aves, megapodiidae): usage conserved
Abstract

The Commission has suppressed the names Pedionomus and Pedionomus ocellatus Gould, [31 October] 1840, thereby conserving the generic names Pedionomus Gould, [1 December] 1840 for the Australian plains-wanderer (pedionomidae) and Leipoa Gould, [1 December] 1840 and the specific name Leipoa ocellata Gould, [1 December] 1840 for the Australian malleefowl (megapodiidae). The names Pedionomus Gould, [1 December] 1840, Leipoa Gould, [1 December] 1840 and Leipoa ocellata Gould, [1 December] 1840 have been in prevailing usage as the valid names for these taxa for over 150 years.
