Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between the family-group enhydrini Régimbart, 1882 (Insecta, Coleoptera) and enhydrini Gray, 1825 (Mammalia, mustelidae) which are homonyms resulting from similarity of the names of their respective type genera, Enhydrus Laporte, 1834 and Enhydra Fleming, 1822. Both names are in use and are placed on the Official List of Generic Names in Zoology. It is proposed to change the spelling of the beetle family-group name to enhydrusini by emending the stem of the name of the type genus Enhydrus Laporte, 1834, while leaving the mammalian name, based on Enhydra Fleming, 1822, unchanged.
