The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81 of the Code, is to conserve the widely used name Cicindela varians Gory, 1833 (currently Cenothyla varians), a primary junior homonym of Cicindela varians Ljungh, 1799, for a species of carabid beetle. The senior homonym has been used only once after 1900, and is a subjective senior synonym of Cicindela scutellaris Say, 1823. Suppression of Cicindela varians Ljungh, 1799 would also help maintain the usage of the widely used name Cicindela scutellaris Say, 1823.
Status of Case:
Resolved (Opinion Issued)
