The Commission has conserved the usage of the name Halectinosoma Vervoort, 1962 for a common genus of primarily marine harpacticoid copepods in the family ectinosomatidae. The name Halectinosoma was threatened by the senior subjective synonym Pararenosetella Lang, 1944 (type species Ectinosoma erythrops Brady, 1880). All previous type fixations for Halectinosoma Vervoort, 1962 were set aside and Ectinosoma chrystalii Scott, 1894 has been designated as the type species. Halectinosoma Vervoort, 1962 has also been given precedence over Pararenosetella Lang, 1944 whenever the two names are considered to be synonyms.
