The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.5 of the Code, is to conserve the specific names Cerambyx striatus Goeze, 1777 and Cerambyx striatus Fabricius, 1787. Cerambyx striatus Linnaeus, 1758, C. striatus Goeze, 1777 and C. striatus Fabricius, 1787 are primary homonyms, but the first name has never been congeneric with either of the other two because it was transferred to Callidium Fabricius, 1775 two years before the description of the first junior primary homonym. The other two nominal species have not been considered congeneric since 1817, when Fabricius's species was transferred to Trachyderes Dalman, 1817. Finally, C. striatus Goeze was removed from Cerambyx Linnaeus, 1758 and placed in Dorcadion Dalman, 1817 in 1947. Currently, Cerambyx has no species with the specific name striatus and the three primary homonyms are in use in distinct generic combinations and are placed in three different subfamilies of cerambycidae. It is proposed that the names Cerambyx striatus Goeze, 1777 and C. striatus Fabricius, 1787 be conserved by ruling that they are not invalid by reason of being junior primary homonyms of C. striatus Linnaeus, 1758.
