The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 68.2 of the Code, is to conserve the widely used generic names Etisus H. Milne Edwards, 1834 and Chlorodiella Rathbun, 1897 in their accustomed usage by suppression of their senior synonym Clorodius A.G. Desmarest, 1823, which was incorrectly used shortly after it was established. The currently used family-group name, CLORODIINAE Dana, 1851, needs to be replaced; here we propose the substitute name CHLORODIELLINAE subfam. nov.
