HIPPOPODIIDAE Cox, 1969 (Mollusca, Bivalvia): spelling emended to HIPPOPODIUMIDAE, so removing the homonymy with HIPPOPODIIDAE Kölliker, 1853 (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa)


Abstract. The Commission has ruled that the stem of the name of the type genus Hippopodium J. Sowerby, 1819 is emended to HIPPOPODIUM- (Mollusca, Bivalvia) thus removing the homonymy with the family-group name HIPPOPODIIDAE Kölliker, 1853 (based on Hippopodius Quoy & Gaimard, 1827) (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa). The spelling of the family-group name HIPPOPODIIDAE Cox, 1969, a junior homonym of HIPPOPODIIDAE Kölliker, 1853, is emended to HIPPOPODIUMIDAE. [details]
