The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55 of the Code, is to
remove the homonymy between the earwig family-group name PALICINAE Burr, 1910
(Dermaptera, SPONGIPHORIDAE) and the crustacean family-group name PALICIDAE
Bouvier, 1898 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura). It is proposed that the spelling of
the family-group name PALICINAE (based on the generic name Palex Burr, 1910) be
emended to give PALEXINAE, while leaving the crustacean name PALICIDAE (based on
the type genus name Palicus Philippi, 1838) unaltered.
