Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81.1 of the Code, is to conserve the widespread usage of the generic name Erythemis Hagen, 1861 for a group of common dragonflies from the New World over the simultaneously published nominal genus Lepthemis Hagen, 1861, selected to take precedence by the First Reviser action (Article 24.2), whenever these names are considered to be synonyms. This proposal seeks to achieve the least change in the nomenclature of the species currently placed in these two genera, in strict accordance with Principle 4 of the Code.
