Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has declined to use its plenary power to conserve the generic name MaculineaVan Eecke, 1915 in its accustomed usage. As a result the generic name PhengarisDoherty, 1891 has priority over MaculineaVan Eecke, 1915 whenever the two are considered to be synonyms.
