Abstract:

The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 and Recommendation 23A of the Code, is to conserve the genus name Mesocrangon Zarenkov, 1965 for a group of boreal crangonid decapods. The genus name Mesocrangon Zarenkov, 1965 is in widespread and current use. This name is threatened by the unused senior primary homonym Mesocrangon Woodward, 1873. It is proposed that the name Mesocrangon Zarenkov, 1965 be conserved by the suppression of Mesocrangon Woodward, 1873
