Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 75.6 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name of the widespread West Palaearctic saprophagous fly Pteremis fenestralis (Fallén, 1820) (sphaeroceridae) in its current usage. A revision of all extant syntypes revealed that they belong to five or six species of four different genera of sphaeroceridae, none of which is identical with Pteremis fenestralis as currently understood. It is proposed that this series of syntypes should be set aside and a male specimen from Sweden, which corresponds to the current usage of the name, be designated as neotype.
