The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 and Recommendation 23A of the Code, is to conserve the genus name Stirpulina Stoliczka, 1870 for a group of watering pot shells. The genus name Stirpulina is in widespread and current use. This name is threatened by the little-used senior subjective synonym Tubolana Bivona Bernardi, 1832. It is proposed that the name Stirpulina be conserved by the suppression of Tubolana.
