Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.5 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name Cetonia squamosa Gory & Percheron, 1833 (currently Aethiessa squamosa, cetoniidae, endemic in Sicily), threatened by the senior homonym Cetonia squamosa Lefebvre, 1827 (currently Protaetia (Netocia) squamosa, also cetoniidae, endemic in southern Italy including Sicily). Both names are in current use, but are placed in different genera and are unlikely ever to be treated as congeneric. In order to conserve the current usage of the name it is proposed that C. squamosa Gory & Percheron, 1833 (which does not have junior synonyms) be conserved by ruling that it is not invalid by reason of being a junior homonym of C. squamosa Lefebvre, 1827.
