30 April 2019 Case 3747 – Rivulinae Grote, 1895 (Lepidoptera, Glossata, Noctuoidea) and Rivulidae Myers, 1925 (Osteichthyes, Cyprinodontiformes): proposed emendation of the spelling of the lepidopterous subfamily to Rivulainae to remove homonymy

Abstract

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.
