I support the application by Bellamy & Moore to conserve the prevailing usage of the generic name i Chevrolat, 1838. I agree with the authors’ proposed suppression of Lasionota Mannerheim, 1837 in favour of Dactylozodes Chevrolat, 1838 (BUPRESTIDAE). Mannerheim’s name has hardly been used for more than 100 years, and can be treated as a nomen oblitum.
(1) According to Article 18.104.22.168 of the Code all genus-group names ending with -odes should be treated as masculine;
(2) Chevrolat (1838) described Dactylozodes as a masculine name, including two nominal species: D. alternans and D. tetrazonus).
