Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the specific name Agrilus angustulus (Illiger, 1803) for a widely distributed species of jewel beetle (family BUPRESTIDAE) by giving it precedence over its unused senior synonym Agrilus pavidus (Fabricius, 1793).
