The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3 of the Code, is to remove the homonymy between the family-group names xylophagidae Purchon, 1941 (Mollusca: Bivalvia) and xylophagidae Fallén, 1810 (Insecta: Diptera), which are homonyms due to the similarity of the names of their respective type genera Xylophaga Turton, 1822 and Xylophagus Meigen, 1803. It is proposed that the stem of the generic name Xylophaga be emended to Xylophaga- to give xylophagaidae, while leaving the fly family name unaltered.
