Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name Helix (Helicogena) aspersa insolida Monterosato, 1892 (currently Erctella insolida; Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Helicidae; endemic to NW Sicily), threatened by the senior primary homonyms Helix (Campylaea) insolida Brusina, 1876 and Helix (Campylaea) insolida Pfeiffer & Clessin, 1881, two unjustified emendations, no longer in use, for Helix insolita Rossmässler, 1838 (currently Chilostoma insolita, Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Helicidae, endemic to Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Herzegovina). In order to conserve the current usage of Monterosato's name it is proposed that Helix (Campylaea) insolida Brusina, 1876 and Helix (Campylaea) insolida Pfeiffer & Clessin, 1881 be suppressed.
