Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81 of the Code, is to conserve the name Phyllotreta undulata (Kutschera, 1860), for a common and widespread flea-beetle species (CHRYSOMELIDAE, GALERUCINAE), which is also a crop pest, by giving it precedence over the unused older name P. bivittata (Waterhouse, 1838), whenever these names are considered to be synonyms.
