The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the name Marmosa isthmica Goldman, 1912 for a species of small Neotropical marsupial. This specific name, which has been used consistently for over a century, is threatened by a senior synonym, Marmosa regina Thomas, 1898, which has been applied incorrectly until very recently.
