phycinae Lyneborg, 1976 (Insecta, Diptera, therevidae): spelling emended to phycusinae and Phycis Walbaum, 1792 (Osteichthyes, Gadiformes, phycidae): usage conserved by designation of Blenniusphycis Linnaeus, 1766 as the type species
Abstract

The Commission has removed homonymy between the family-group names phycinae Swainson, 1838 (Osteichthyes, Gadiformes, phycidae) and phycinae Lyneborg, 1976 (Insecta, Diptera, therevidae) by emending the stem of the genus-group name Phycus Walker, 1850, on which the insect family-group name is based, and has changed the family-group name to phycusinae, leaving the fish family-group name, based on Phycis Walbaum, 1792, unaltered. The prevailing usage of Phycis Walbaum, 1792 has been conserved by setting aside all previous type species fixations and designating Blennius phycis Linnaeus, 1766 as the type species.
