The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the usage of the family-group name Platypleurini Schmidt, 1918 and its derivatives for a group of Old World cicada species, by giving it precedence over the senior synonym Hamzaria Distant, 1905. Platypleurini was recently synonymised with Hamzini following molecular data that appeared in a dissertation. Platypleurini was used for the family group containing Platypleura from 1918 to the present day in at least 127 publications, while only four papers have applied Hamzini in the new sense (including Platypleura).
