Abstract

The purpose of the present application, under Articles 75.5 and 75.6 of the Code, is to conserve the names Bengalia jejuna (Fabricius, 1787) and Bengalia torosa (Wiedemann, 1819) in their accustomed usage for two Oriental blowflies by setting aside the three female syntypes of Musca jejunaFabricius, 1787 and the male and female syntypes of Musca torosaWiedemann, 1819, which are either not conforming to the prevailing usage of the names or unidentifiable, and in each case by replacing them with a male neotype.
