Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the name Delognatha Lacordaire, 1859 for a tenebrionid genus from the Neotropical Region. This name is a junior homonym of the unused name Delognatha Agassiz, 1846. Delognatha Lacordaire, 1859 has been used as valid since its description, while Delognatha Agassiz, 1846 has not been used as valid after it was established other than by two authors more than 150 years ago. It is proposed to conserve the name Delognatha Lacordaire, 1859 by suppression of the name Delognatha Agassiz, 1846.
