coryninae Benson, 1938 (Insecta, Hymenoptera, cimbicidae): spelling emended to corynidinae to remove homonymy with corynidae Johnston, 1836 (Cnidaria, Anthoathecata)
Abstract

The Commission has removed the homonymy between two family-group names, coryninae of Hymenoptera (Insecta) and corynidae of Anthoathecata (Cnidaria) by adopting the Greek genitive form Corynid- of the sawfly genus Corynis Thunberg, 1789 as the stem of the corresponding family-group name, giving corynidinae Benson, 1938. corynidae Johnston, 1836, a name for hydrozoans, remains unchanged.
