Abstract

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has declined to use its plenary power to set aside the existing lectotype of Chionobas chryxusDoubleday, 1849 and to designate a neotype. However, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has used its specific powers to confirm that the name-bearing type is the male specimen illustrated in Doubleday (1849).
