Geophilus linearis C.L. Koch, 1835 (currently Stenotaenia linearis; Chilopoda): specific name conserved and Geophilus sorrentinus (currently Stenotaenia sorrentina; Chilopoda) Attems, 1903: specific name not conserved
Abstract

The Commission has conserved the specific name Geophilus linearis C.L. Koch, 1835 for a widespread European species of geophilomorph centipede currently referred to the genus Stenotaenia C.L. Koch, 1847 by suppressing the name Geophilus simplex Gervais, 1835. The Commission has not approved the proposed suppression of the name Geophilus forficularius Fanzago, 1881, a putative senior synonym of Geophilus sorrentina Attems, 1903.
