Author Affiliations +
Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name of the dung beetle Onthophagus rugulosus Harold, 1886 (Coleoptera: scarabaeidae), a widespread species from East Asia, by suppressing the senior secondary homonym Elytridium rugidosum Heer, 1870, a fragmentary fossil from the Miocene of Spitsbergen, Norway, that was transferred to Onthophagus in 1977. A replacement name, O. spitsbergeniensis nom. nov., is proposed for the dubious fossil species.
