Haltica schillingii Letzner, 1847 (currently Dibolia schillingii; Insecta, Coleoptera, chrysomelidae): no precedence given over Petalopusmetallicus Motschulsky, 1845 (currently Dibolia metallica)
Abstract

The Commission has not used its plenary power to conserve the name Dibolia schillingii (Letzner, 1847) for a flea-beetle species (chrysomelidae, alticinae; or galerucinae, alticini) widespread in western Palaearctic, by giving it precedence over the unused older name Dibolia metallica (Motschulsky, 1845), whenever these names are considered to be synonyms.
