The purpose of this application, under Articles 55.3.1 and 29 of the Code, is to remove homonymy between the family-group name Diphyini Simon, 1894 currently placed in Tetragnathidae (Araneae) and the hydrozoan family-group name Diphyidae Quoy & Gaimard, 1827. It is proposed that the spelling of the spider name (based on the generic name Diphya Nicolet, 1849) be emended to give Diphyaini, while leaving the hydrozoan name (based on the generic name Diphyes Cuvier, 1817) unaltered.
