The purpose of this application is to conserve usage of the subfamily name of certain grasshoppers, OEDIPODINAE Walker, 1 870 by giving it precedence over LOCUSTiNAE Latreille, 1802 whenever the two are considered synonyms. Both subfamilies are normally placed in the family ACRIDIDAE Karny, 1907, and it is proposed that this name be given precedence over both senior names.
