Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3 of the Code, is to emend the spelling of the family-group name amphiporidae Rukhin, 1938 (Porifera, Stromatoporata, Amphiporida), a junior homonym of amphiporidae McIntosh, 1873 (Nemertea, Hoplonemertea) thereby removing the homonymy between the two names. It is proposed that the stem of the generic name Amphipora Schulz, 1883, on which the stromatoporoid name is based, be emended to Amphiporato give amphiporaidae, while leaving the nemertean family-group name (based on Amphiporus Ehrenberg, 1831) unchanged.
