I fully agree with the statements and proposals made in this application. I
support the proposal, as the generic names Araneus and Tegenaria are very widely used and any other ruling would cause terrible and unnecessary confusion. Moreover, the solution proposed fully conforms to the presumed intentions of the original authors.
