Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has conserved the species-group names leucorynchusLinnaeus, 1771 and mascarinusLinnaeus, 1771 as respective justified emendations of the specific names for a woodswallow, Artamus leucorynchus (Linnaeus, 1771), type species of the avian genus Artamus (Artamidae), and a parrot, Mascarinus mascarinus (Linnaeus, 1771), type species of the avian genus Mascarinus (Psittacidae). Both names were originally spelled by Linnaeus (1771) in his Mantissa Plantarum Altera as “leucoryn.” and “mascarin.”, in the binomina Lanius leucoryn. and Psittacus mascarin. respectively.
