Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Articles 78.1 and 81.2.1 of the Code, is to conserve a name that has been used mistakenly for a long time for a very well-known Holarctic butterfly species, by suppressing Papilio phoebus Fabricius, 1793 and thereby freeing for use Papilio phoebus de Prunner, 1798, a junior primary homonym that actually refers to the taxonomic species in question. This course, effectively resulting only in a change in authorship, would make additional name changes unnecessary and thus promote nomenclatural stability
