Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has emended the spelling of the name XylophagidaePurchon, 1941 (Mollusca, Bivalvia) to remove homonymy with XylophagidaeFallén, 1810 (Insecta, Diptera). The stem of the molluscan generic name XylophagaTurton, 1822 has been emended to Xylophaga- to give Xylophagaidae while the dipteran family group name (based on XylophagusMeigen, 1803) remains unchanged.
