Abstract

The Commission has ruled that the current usage of the name Schizechinus Pomel, 1869 (Echinodermata, Echinoidea) for a genus of toxopneustid echinoids from the Miocene of the Mediterranean region and possibly the Neogene of Australia is not conserved. The name Echinus serresii Des Moulins, 1837 is maintained and designation of Psammechinus serresii Desor, 1856 as the type species of Schizechinus Pomel, 1869 is not accepted.
