The purpose of this application, under Article 55.3.1 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between two family-group names of Hexapoda: the coleopteran tribal name ACALYPTINI Thomson, 1859 (type genus Acalyptus Schönherr, 1833; family CURCULIONIDaE) and the heteropteran tribal name ACALYPTINI Blatchley, 1926 (type genus Acalypta Westwood, 1840; family TINGIDAE). We propose to adopt the entire type genus name Acalypta Westwood, 1840 as the stem for the corresponding family-group name ACALYPTAINI Blatchley, 1926. The senior homonym ACALYPTINI Thomson, 1859 (Coleoptera), based on Acalyptus Schönherr, 1833, will remain unchanged.
