The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.5 of the Code, is to conserve the name Murex rostratus Olivi, 1792 (currently Fusinus rostratus) (Mollusca, Gastropoda, FASCIOLARIIDAE) in its prevailing usage by ruling that this name is not invalid by virtue of being a junior primary homonym of Murex rostratus Solander in Brander, 1766 (currently Turricula rostrata). The senior homonym is currently included in TURRIDAE and has not been considered congeneric with Murex rostratus Olivi, 1792 after 1899.
