Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Article 75.6 of the Code, is to conserve the widely used specific name Lethocerus annulipes (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1845) for a common Neotropical giant water bug (family BELOSTOMATIDAE) by setting aside all previous type fixations and designating a neotype.
