Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 78.1 and 81.1 of the Code, is to conserve the established usage of the species name Arion vulgaris with the authorship of Moquin-Tandon (1855). This name was very frequently used in the last several years, but was primary published as a synonym of Arion rufusLinnaeus, 1758 and it is not available under Article 11.6 of the Code. To avoid confusion and further disturbance of nomenclature the Commission is requested to validate the availability of this name and its authorship.
