Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has declined to use its plenary power to remove the homonymy between the earwig family-group name Palicinae Burr, 1910 (Dermaptera, Spongiphoridae) and the crustacean family-group name Palicidae Bouvier, 1898 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura) by changing the stem of the former name's type genus. Under Articles 40.2 and 60.2 of the Code, Platylabiinae Burr, 1911 is recognized as the currently valid name of this dermapteran subfamily.
