Abstract:The purpose of this application, under Articles 23.9.3 and 81 of the Code, is to conserve the name Dibolia schillingii (Letzner, 1847), for a flea-beetle species (CHRYSOMELIDAE, ALTICINAE OR GALERUCINAE, ALTICINI) widespread in western Palaearctic, by giving it precedence over the unused older name Dibolia metallica (Motschulsky, 1845), whenever these names are considered to be synonyms.
