Abstract:

The Commission has ruled that the current usage of the generic name Calamaria H. Boie in F. Boie, 1827 for a genus of Asian colubrid snakes is conserved by setting aside all previous fixations of type species and designating Calamaria linnaei H. Boie in F. Boie, 1827 as the type species.
