Abstract

Under the plenary power, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has emended the spelling of the family-group name CharinidaeGray, 1849 (Reptilia, Squamata, Serpentes) to remove homonymy with CharinidaeQuintero, 1986 (Arachnida, Amblypygi). The stem of the generic name CharinaGray, 1849 has been emended to Charina- to give the family-group name Charinaidae for the former while the latter family-group name based on Charinus Simon in Raffray, Bolivar & Simon, 1892 remains unchanged. The Commission has also used its plenary power to emend the spelling of the family-group name UngaliopheinaeMcDowell, 1987 to UngaliophiinaeMcDowell, 1987.
