The purpose of this application, under Articles 24.2 and 81.2.3 of the Code, is to conserve the usage of nine specific names of Australian birds. The names, chosen as senior by First Revisers, were later replaced almost a hundred years ago by simultaneously published names on grounds of page precedence. The names chosen by page precedence, all of common and often popular Australian birds, have been in prevailing use ever since and are in universal use today. This application seeks to validate these names for reasons of nomenclatural stability.
