Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to
conserve the specific name of the dung beetle Onthophagus rugulosus Harold, 1886
(Coleoptera: SCARABAEIDAE), a widespread species from East Asia, by suppressing the
senior secondary homonym Elytridium rugulosum Heer, 1870, a fragmentary fossil
from the Miocene of Spitsbergen, Norway, that was transferred to Onthophagus in
1977. A replacement name, O. spitsbergeniensis nom. nov., is proposed for the
dubious fossil species.
