Abstract:

The Commission has ruled that the family-group names THEBINI Wenz, 1923, MONACHAINAE / MONACHAINI Wenz, 1930 (1904) and SPHINCTEROCHILIDAE Zilch, 1960 (1910) are conserved for several West Palaearctic helicoid land snails. Problems arising as a consequence of rulings given in Opinion 431 (1956) are resolved by placing the names THEBINI Wenz, 1923, MONACHAINAE / MONACHAINI Wenz, 1930 (1904) and SPHINCTEROCHILIDAE Zilch, 1960 on the Official List.
