Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 55.3.1 and 29 of the Code, is to remove homonymy between the family-group name metinae Simon, 1894 currently used in Araneae (tetragnathidae) and the crustacean family-group name metidae Boeck, 1872. It is proposed that the spelling of the spider name (based on the generic name Meta C.L. Koch, 1835) be emended to give metainae, while leaving the crustacean name (based on the generic name Metis) unaltered.
