Abstract:

The Commission has ruled that the stem of the generic name Ancyla
Lepeletier de Saint Fargeau, 1841, on which the hymenopteran family-group name
ANCYLINI Michener, 1944 is based, is Ancyla-, to give ANCYLAINI, thereby removing the
homonymy with ANCYLINI Rafinesque, 1815 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, based on
Ancylus Müller, 1774).
