Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Articles 13, 67.2.1 and 67.8 of the Code, is to conserve the name Dichochrysa Yang, 1991 for a widespread and speciose genus of Old and New World green lacewings. The name Dichochrysa is a replacement name for Navasius Yang & Yang, 1990, which is a junior homonym of Navasius Esben-Petersen, 1936, but Dichochrysa is unavailable from its original publication because it is based on the unavailable specific name Navasius eumorphus Yang & Yang, 1990. It is proposed to conserve the name Dichochrysa by ruling that the name Navasius eumorphus is available from its publication by Yang & Yang (1990).
