The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3, 81.2.1 and 81.2.3 of the Code, is to conserve the name Curculio antirrhini Paykull, 1800, a common Palaearctic weevil species currently belonging to the genus Rhinusa Stephens, 1829 (Curculionoidea, Curculionidae) by giving it precedence over the little-used older name Curculio noctis Herbst, 1795 whenever these names are considered synonyms.
