The five volumes of Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire des insectes, published between 1752 and 1778 by De Geer, and an additional volume published by Retzius in 1783, which are not consistently binominal, have been ruled as consistently binominal and available for zoological nomenclature, whereas 140 polynominal names mentioned in these works have been suppressed. In addition, the names Aranealupus, Araneaphalangium and Araneacancroides have been suppressed for the purposes of the Principle of Priority, but not for those of the Principle of Homonymy. The name Pediculus humanus capitis has been ruled to be available.
