Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has declined to use its plenary power to conserve the specific name of Phrynus mexicanus Poinar & Brown, 2004 for a fossil whip spider, a junior primary homonym of Phrynus mexicanus Bilimek, 1867 (currently Paraphrynus mexicanus). As a result, the name Phrynus mexicanus Poinar & Brown, 2004 is invalid and needs to be replaced.
