The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to suppress the unused and unidentified name Paludina conica Férussac, 1814, in order to protect the name Paludina conica Prévost, 1821 (currently ‘Peringia’ conica), which has been consistently in use since its inception, and for which no junior replacement name is known, thereby avoiding the introduction of a replacement name. Both nominal species are fossils from the Tertiary of the Paris Basin.
