The Commission has ruled that the application for the proposed conservation of the green lacewing generic name Dichochrysa Yang, 1991 (a replacement name for Navasius X.-k. Yang & C.-k. Yang, 1990) by making the name Navasius eumorphus Yang & Yang, 1990 available, is not approved. The priority of the generic name Pseudomallada Tsukaguchi,1995 (type species: Chrysopa cognatella Okamoto, 1914, by original designation) is maintained.
