The Commission did not support an application to give precedence to the name Chelodina rugosa Ogilby, 1890 (currently Macrochelodina rugosa) for the northern long-necked turtle from northern Australia over Chelodina oblonga when- ever the two are considered to be synonyms, nor to set aside all previous designations of a type specimen for Chelodina oblonga Gray, 1841 and to designate as its neotype the lectotype of Chelodina colliei Gray, 1856.
OPINION 2315 (Case 3351) Chelodina rugosa Ogilby, 1890 (currently Macrochelodina rugosa; Reptilia, Testudines): precedence not granted over Chelodina oblonga Gray, 1841
