Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name Pomachilius variegatus Schwarz, 1904 (Insecta, Coleoptera, elateridae) by suppression of the name Aeolus variegatus Curtis, 1839 a senior secondary homonym, and a subjective junior synonym of Pomachilius subfasciatus (Germar, 1824). Stability of taxonomy and nomenclature would best be served by suppressing the senior homonym.
