30 April 2019 Opinion 2432 (Case 3713) – Scarabaeus ferrugineus Palisot de Beauvois, 1809 (currently Bradycinetulus ferrugineus) (Insecta, Coleoptera, Scarabaeoidea): specific name conserved
Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has conserved the usage of the specific names of Scarabaeus ferrugineus Olivier, 1789 (currently Metacatharsius ferrugineus) (Scarabaeidae) and Scarabaeus ferrugineusPalisot de Beauvois, 1809 (currently Bradycinetulus ferrugineus) (Geotrupidae) by ruling that the latter nominal species is not invalid by reason of being a junior homonym of the former.
