The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3, 67.11 and 81.2.1 of the Code, is to conserve the usage of the generic names Fidia Baly, 1863 and Lypesthes Baly, 1863 for leaf beetle genera by suppressing the name Fidia Motschulsky, 1860 (senior homonym of Fidia Baly, 1863 and senior synonym of Lypesthes Baly, 1863). Conservation would confer the greatest stability in the naming of these chrysomelid taxa.
