Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has conserved current usage of the specific name of Circus assimilisJardine & Selby, 1828 for the Australo-Wallacean spotted harrier by designating a neotype for this nominal species. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has also conserved current usage of the specific name of Circus approximansPeale, 1848 by suppressing, for the purposes of the Principle of Priority, its objective synonym Circus juxtaPeale, 1848, which was published simultaneously with it but was designated as the senior synonym by the first reviser.
