Abstract
The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between the family-group names omalidae Handlirsch, 1904 (Insecta, Archaeorthoptera) and omalidae MacLeay, 1825 (Insecta, Coleoptera), which are homonyms due to the similarity of the names of their respective type genera Omalia Beneden & Coemans, 1867 and Omalium Gravenhorst, 1802, and between the family-group names xenopteridae Pinto, 1986 (Insecta, Megasecoptera) and xenopteridae Riek, 1955 (Insecta, Orthoptera), which are homonyms due to the similarity of the names of their respective type-genera Xenoptera Pinto, 1986 and Xenopterum Riek, 1955. It is proposed that the stem of the generic name Omalia be emended to Omalia- to give omaliaidae, while leaving the beetle family name unaltered, and that the stem of the generic name Xenoptera be emended to Xenoptera- to give xenopteraidae, while leaving the orthopteran family name unaltered.
