20 December 2019 Case 3813 – Acalyptini Thomson, 1859 (Hexapoda, Coleoptera) and Acalyptini Blatchley, 1926 (Hexapoda, Heteroptera): proposed removal of homonymy by emendation of the latter name to Acalyptaini

Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 55.3.1 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between two family-group names of Hexapoda: the coleopteran tribal name AcalyptiniThomson, 1859 (type genus AcalyptusSchönherr, 1833; family Curculionidae) and the heteropteran tribal name AcalyptiniBlatchley, 1926 (type genus AcalyptaWestwood, 1840; family Tingidae). We propose to adopt the entire type genus name AcalyptaWestwood, 1840 as the stem for the corresponding family-group name AcalyptainiBlatchley, 1926. The senior homonym AcalyptiniThomson, 1859 (Coleoptera), based on AcalyptusSchönherr, 1833, will remain unchanged.
