The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3, is to remove the homonymy between the family-group name corystidae Foster & Philip, 1978 (Echinodermata, Echinoidea) and corystidae Samouelle, 1819 (Crustacea, Brachyura). corystidae Samouelle, 1819 and corystidae Foster & Philip, 1978 are homonyms resulting from similarity of the names of their type genera, Corystes Bosc, 1802 and Corystus Pomel, 1883, respectively. Both names are in use. It is proposed to change the spelling of the echinoderm family-group name to corystusidae by emending the stem of the name of the type genus Corystus Pomel, 1883, while leaving the crustacean name, based on Corystes Bosc, 1802, unchanged.
