Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3.1 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between two family-group names, coryninae of Hymenoptera (Insecta) and corynidae of Anthoathecata (Cnidaria). It is proposed to adopt the Greek genitive form Corynid- of the sawfly genus Corynis Thunberg, 1789 as the stem of the corresponding family-group name, giving corynidinae Benson, 1938. corynidae Johnston, 1836, a name for hydrozoans, would remain unchanged.
