The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name of the well-known species Cantharidus capillaceus (Philippi, 1849), a common marine gastropod from southern New Zealand and Macquarie Island. The name is threatened by the senior subjective synonym Trochus episcopus Hombron & Jacquinot, 1848 which has been mentioned very rarely since its first publication. Precedence of the name Trochus capillaceus Philippi, 1849 over Trochus episcopus Hombron & Jacquinot, 1848 is proposed.
Status of Case:
Resolved (Opinion Issued)
