The Commission has conserved the specific name Onitis aeruginosus Klug, 1855, a junior primary homonym of Onitis aeruginosus Perty, 1830. Both names are in use today and have not been considered congeneric since 1859, when the senior homonym was transferred to the genus Gromphas Brullé, 1837. A third homonym, Onitis aeruginosus Gistel, 1831, which also has priority over Onitis aeruginosus Klug, 1855, but cannot be fixed to any species, has been totally suppressed for the purposes of the Principle of Priority and of the Principle of Homonymy.
