The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81, is to maintain
usage of the junior homonym Chaetosoma Westwood, 1851 and of the junior
synonym Apodasya Pascoe, 1863 over the newly discovered older name Chaetosoma
Chevrolat, 1843. The Commission is also asked to conserve the beetle family-group
name CHAETOSOMATIDAE Crowson, 1952 by suppressing the older but permanently
invalid nematode name CHAETOSOMATIDAE Claus, 1872
