Crioceris quadripunctata Olivier, 1808 (currently Petauristesquadripunctatus; Insecta, Coleoptera): specific name conserved
Abstract

The Commission has conserved the name Petauristes quadripunctatus (Olivier, 1808) for a common and widespread South Asian beetle originally described as Crioceris quadripunctata, by ruling that it is not invalid by reason of being a junior primary homonym of Crioceris quadripunctata Fabricius, 1801 (currently Monolepta quadripunctata).
