TitleNematois australis Heydenreich, 1851 (currently Adela australis; Insecta; Lepiodoptera): proposed presedence over Tinea aldrovandella Villers 1789

KeywordsNomenclature; taxonomy; Adelidae; Adela australis; Tinea aldrovandella
AbstractThe purpose of this application, under articles 23.9.3 and 81.2.3 of the Code, is to conserve the widely used specific name Adela australis (Heydenreich, 1851) for a common south European fairy moth (family Adelidae) by giving it precedence over the questionable senior synonym Tinea aldrovandella Villers 1789. T. aldrovandella was not used after publication until 1980 when it was mentioned as a possible synonym of A. australis. Since 1980, some, but not all authors have accepted this synonymy.
