The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the generic name Atractus Wagler, 1828 for a group of common Neotropical snakes by suppression of its senior objective synonym Brachyura Kuhl and van Hasselt, 1822. In addition, it is proposed that the specific name Atractus trilineatus Wagler, 1828 (the name of the type species of Atractus) is conserved by suppression of its senior objective synonym Brachyorrhos kuhli H. Boie in Schlegel, 1826.
