Nomenclature Two family-group names are older than Babyloniidae. Swainson based his concept of Eburninae on species of Babylonia, but he misidentified Eburna, the type species of which belongs to the family Olividae; under Art. 41 of the Code, the case should be resolved by the Commission. Latrunculinae is based on Latrunculus, a junior synonym of Babylonia which has sporadically been used as valid shortly after 1899 (e.g. by Cossmann, 1901b, when he established the subfamily name), so that Babyloniidae cannot be protected automatically under Art. 23.9 (Reversal of precedence).  [details]
