The purpose of this application, under Articles 55.3.1 and 78.2.3 of the Code, is to resolve the homonymy between the family-group names RivuliniGrote, 1895 in Lepidoptera and RivuliniMyers, 1925 in Pisces. It is proposed that the stem of the generic name Rivula Guenée in Duponchel, 1845 be emended to Rivula-, so as to change the spelling of the moth family-group name, currently as the subfamily Rivulainae, while leaving the fish family-group name unaltered.
