Author Affiliations +
Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 75.6 and 81 of the Code, is to conserve two specific gastropod names Turbo bidens Linnaeus, 1758 (currently Papillifera bidens) and Clausilia incisa Küster, 1876 (currently Cochlodina incisa), by setting aside the neotype designated by Kadolsky (2009) and by fixing the neotype of Helix papillaris Müller, 1774 as neotype for Turbo bidens. This request is in line with Opinion 2176, in which Helix papillaris was regarded as a junior synonym of Turbo bidens.
