Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the widely used specific name Hybosorus illigeriReiche, 1853 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea, Hybosoridae), a globally widespread and common scarab beetle. The name is threatened by the very rarely used senior subjective synonyms Hybosorus pinguisWestwood, 1845, Hybosorus roeiWestwood, 1845, and Hybosorus carolinusLeConte, 1847. Precedence of the name Hybosorus illigeri is proposed to maintain stability of nomenclature.
