We support the reversal of precedence of Coprinisphaera Sauer 1955 overFontanai Roselli 1939 as proposed by Krell, instead of the conservation of the ichnogeneric name Coprinisphaera Sauer, 1955 by suppressing the senior synonym Fontanai Roselli, 1939 as proposed by Genise et al. (BZN 63: 243–246), thus avoiding the suppression of a name that might represent a distinct ichnotaxon in a future refined ichnotaxonomy.
